[Perspectives] Taking a dose of Roald Dahl’s marvellous medicine

With more than 50 000 shows being staged by over 3000 artists in 300 venues, there are performances to suit all tastes at next month’s 70th Edinburgh Festival Fringe—but one show at the arts festival has a special sprinkling of literary magic. Tom Solomon, Professor of Neurology and Director of the Institute of Infection and Global Health at the University of Liverpool, UK, will entertain families with his Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Medicine show, which will introduce a new generation to Dahl’s tales, while allowing older readers to revisit their favourite books.
