Roald Dahl’s The Twits

A Curve Theatre, Leicester and Rose Theatre, Kingston production

Mon 27 February – Sat 4 March

One of Roald Dahl’s classic stories will come to life in February, as The Twits head to the Exeter Northcott Theatre.

Mr Twit has a very hairy face. His beard is spiky and smelly. It also contains cornflakes, sardines and even some stilton.

Mrs Twit is equally as foul and she hates Mr Twit just as much as Mr Twit hates her.

The Twits really are the most spiteful and revolting couple you could ever hope to meet. They spend their days playing wicked tricks on each other and mistreating Muggle-Wump monkeys. They also have a particularly sticky trick to catch Roly-Poly birds for their bird pies. But not for much longer because the monkeys have a cunning plan to teach those terrible twits a lesson.

Directed by Max Webster (The Lorax at The Old Vic) and adapted by David Wood (George’s Marvellous Medicine, The Tiger Who Came To Tea), this mischievous new show promises to be just as disgusting and repulsive as earth worms disguised as spaghetti – the perfect treat for all the family.

“A deliciously horrid tale told with relish and affection”

“A raucous audience-participation adventure”
                                                                                   THE GUARDIAN

Mr and Mrs Twit are wonderfully revolting”
