Adapted for the stage by shake & stir theatre co

Roald Dahl’s gruesome twosome The Twits arrive on stage to delight and disgust, in equal measure. Proudly brought to you by multi-award-winning shake & stir theatre co.

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, The Twits is unmissable theatre for all ages, from the team behind the sold out seasons of Fantastic Mr Fox 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.

“A theatre full of adults and children all laughing together – that is precisely what you get with shake & stir – pure entertainment!” Stage Whispers
If you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” Roald Dahl ~ The Twits
