The Twits hit Lancaster!

Roald Dahl’s terrible twosome come to Lancaster for a special Christmas production...

Mr Twit is hairy, smelly and his beard contains a startling array of food items, including tinned sardines, stilton cheese, and cornflakes. He is a known drinker of beer, even at breakfast, and goes very quiet while plotting his latest evil trick on his wife, Mrs Twit.

She, having had many ugly thoughts, is now the ugliest woman in the world. She is no more hygienic than her husband and no more pleasant either.

Mrs Twit has a glass eye, which she uses to frighten her husband. He puts toe-biting Skillywigglers in her bed and she feeds him worms for his tea. They spend their days hilariously playing nasty tricks on each other until one day they decide to create a circus, and kidnap a family of Muggle-Wump monkeys from deepest, darkest Africa to perform tricks for them.

The Twits is brought to you by the same creative team that created the Dukes’ 2005 and 2006 Christmas shows and is recommended for children aged four and above.

Roald Dahl’s The Twits, adapted for the stage by David Wood, will run from Friday 23rd November – Saturday 5th January 2008. For more information call 0845 344 0642.
