If you pored over classic children’s book Matilda as a child, chances are you loved it. It’s hard not to: inspiring and empowering, this Roald Dahl classic tells the story of a little girl who discovers that she has the power of telekinesis, then uses it to fight back against an evil school principal. The Royal Shakespeare Company’s musical adaptation is just as magical – and it’s making its Hong Kong debut this month, running from 20 September–6 October. matildainternational.com
