The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda – The Musical won a record seven Olivier Awards in 2012, including Best Actor in a Musical for Bertie Carvel, playing the hammer-throwing schoolmarm Miss Trunchbull.

After a 12 week stint at Stratford-Upon-Avon, Matilda transferred to the Cambridge Theatre in the West End in November 2011.

He reprised the role on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre, earning a Tony nomination. Bertie performed 650 show-stealing turns as the despot with a colossal bosom and hunchback who lived by the motto: Bambinatum est maggitum (children are maggots)
