About Roald Dahl and his legacy
Born in Cardiff of Norwegian descent, Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was one of the world’s most inventive, mischievous, and successful storytellers. His stories are currently available in 58 languages and, by a conservative estimate, he has sold more than 200 million books.
Many of Roald Dahl’s best-loved stories have been adapted for stage and screen. High profile film adaptations include Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), James and the Giant Peach (1996), Matilda (1996), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) and Fantastic Mr Fox (2009). The next movie will be Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of The BFG, set for release in July 2016.
The RSC’s phenomenally successful award-winning stage version of Matilda The Musical continues to play to packed audiences in London’s West End and on Broadway, ahead of its Australia opening and US tour later in 2015. Over a million people have seen the acclaimed West End musical production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, directed by Sam Mendes since its opening in June 2013. A mischievous new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Twits by Enda Walsh premiered at London’s Royal Court in April 2015. In July 2015, “Twit or Miss” - the first app to feature Roald Dahl characters – launches.
Roald Dahl Day is marked annually all over the world on – and around – Roald Dahl’s birthday, September 13th. In 2016, there will be global celebrations for the Centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth from January through December. These will include the transformation of Roald’s hometown Cardiff into a “City of the Unexpected”.
Ten percent of all the Roald Dahl royalties are donated to the two Roald Dahl charities - Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre.
