Watch out. The cabbage-crunching, criminal master-mind Gangsta Granny is coming to the Ipswich Regent.
Birmingham Stage Company, the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories, bring the world premiere of David Walliams’ best-selling book to the theatre from April 5-9 next year ahead of a West End run.
The comedian and Britain’s Got Talent TV judge’s 2011 book was shortlisted for The Red House Children’s Book Award and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.
It went straight to number one in the children’s book charts. A TV version aired on BBC One at Christmas nearly three years ago.
It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing, staying with Granny and eating cabbage soup, cabbage pie, cabbage cake...
Expecting a boring night, he doesn’t know she’s been leading a secret double life. His evening is about to get more exciting than he could imagine.
Watching the first night of Gangsta Granny at Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre, Walliams himself said: “What a fantastic show. Superb. And so much better than the book.”
