Where: The PumpHouse

Roald Dahl continues to delight readers of all ages, and we’re just as delighted that the Dahl estate has agreed to Tim Bray’s adaptation of this iconic story, with new songs by Christine White.

Giggle and gasp at the antics of Mr. and Mrs. Twit, a hideous and hilarious couple who love to play nasty pranks on each other and their pet monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps. Glass eyeball in your drink anyone? How about worm spaghetti made with real worms? And bird pie made with real … you get it. Ugghh! Luckily, when Mr. Twit tries to create the world’s first Great Upside Down Monkey Circus, the Twits get a dose of their own nasty medicine. A brilliantly entertaining show for Road Dahl fans of all ages.

“Tim Bray has directed another engaging piece of old-school family theatre… Plenty of clever jokes, stupid jokes, audience participation games, and sing-along numbers make for a fulfilling hour’s theatre.” – Nik Smythe, Theatreview
