Dahl’s gruesome twosome The Twits, live on stage in a visually spectacular, delightfully-disgusting, revoltingly-funny production for the whole family.

The Twits are ready to delight and disgust, in equal measure.

Mr and Mrs Twit are the nastiest couple you could ever hope (not) to meet. Both are on a quest to be meaner than the other – but, is there someone out there who can out-twit the Twits?

Full of trickery and wickedly-funny pranks, Dahl’s adored classic encourages us to treat others with love and care and proves that if you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams.

Packed with Dahlicious mischief, hilarious mayhem and big belly laughs, TheTwits is an unmissable fun for all ages, from shake & stir theatre co the award-winning team behind the sold out seasons of Fantastic Mr Fox, Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts and George’s Marvellous Medicine.

You’ve read the book – it’s time to experience this family classic from the wacky mind of the world’s No. 1 Storyteller live on stage.

You won’t believe your (glass) eyes.

Running time 55mins no interval. Suitable for ages 5-105
Loud music and sound fx, strobe lighting, haze and two very nasty
