Instagram takeover: Fantastic Mr Fox

The bright and beautiful musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s brilliant tale of one sly fox and three greedy, horrid farmers returned to the Lyric Hammersmith this summer – and Fantastic Mr Fox himself took over our Instagram channels to show us around backstage.

From dressing room cards to backstage pranks, the comprehensive Instagram story, captured over the course of a two-show day, makes for riotous watching – if not always entirely family-friendly!

A juicy tale of greed, pride and the power of friendship, the dahlicious theatrical feast Fantastic Mr Fox featured live music and songs and gloriumptious designs, and won critical and audiences acclaim on its return to the venue.

The show will be followed at the Lyric Hammersmith by Simon Stephens’ exciting reimagining of the Chekhov classic The Seagull, which plays from 3 October.
