The BFG is short for Big Friendly Giant an is a book written by Roald Dahl. It is the play that the RMIT students are putting on this year for us kids. The play is performed at RMIT which is a university and they do a play every year – usually one based on one of Roald Dahl’s books.
The BFG is a giant who is very friendly, but small compared to the other giants. This whizz-popping sensational play draws children in to hear the tale of a little girl (Sophie) and her fabulous friend as they set out to save England.
In this play, instead of one Sophie and one BFG, there were three of each character! One BFG was made of paper mache with a person inside of it and one of the Sophies was a puppet made of felt. The other ones were little stick puppet characters with Mr Rob The Sound Guy operated.
The BFG catches dreams in a butterfly net, then puts them into jars and writes labels for them. He is a vegetarian giant and has to eat snozzcumbers. Snozzcumbers are the most despicable black and white vegetables in the whole of Giantland. If you are ever willing to try one, then you may wonder whom will be willing to join you!
Bloodbottler is a rather bothersome giant. He eats small children instead of snozzcumbers. His hair sticks up all over the place and when the BFG offered him some snozzcumber he returns furious and spits the disgusting vegetable out.
Finally, for those who have read the story, here is a quick BFG quiz:
