James Trotter, an orphan, lives with his two abominable aunts in a house by the sea. James’ life is lonely and sad until, one day, he receives a mysterious gift. His aunts’ old peach tree starts to creak and groan, and a peach grows bigger and bigger and bigger. James finds his way inside, where he meets a troupe of chatty (and enormous) bugs. When the peach rolls down the hill and out to sea, James and his new friends find themselves on a fantastic transatlantic adventure. A.R.T.’s family programming continues with this adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved tale directed by A.R.T. Institute alumnus Dmitry Troyanovsky '00.
