Roald Dahl’s The Twits

Roald Dahl’s The Twits

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.” – Roald Dahl, The Twits.

Mr and Mrs Twit haven’t had a good thought in years. They like nothing more than dreaming up terrible tricks to play on each other, eating hot bird pie and training Muggle-Wump the monkey for the Great Upside-Down Monkey Circus.


Join us for the world premiere season of this new adaption of The Twits, it is Roald Dahl in his purest form – unsentimental, grotesque and a lot of fun!


This comedy of rebellion and justice is a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry, and physical theatre.
