With the Robbie Williams/Guy Chambers musical The Boy in the Dress currently at the RSC in Stratford, David Walliams is sure giving Michael Morpurgo a run as theatre’s favourite children’s author. The best-selling author’s Roald Dahl-style novels are a huge hit with family audiences and Birmingham Stage Company’s new adaptation of the story of poor little rich boy Joe Spud, whose dad invented a revolutionary loo roll called Bumfresh, has already won fans while out on tour. But money can’t buy Joe friendship and the show features a cast of grotesques from Len’s gold-digging girlfriend to repulsive school dinner ladies and revolting school bullies. Definitely not PC, but almost certainly fun.
He has his own sports car, two crocodiles as pets and £100,000 a week pocket money! But what Joe doesn't have is a friend. So he decides to leave his posh school and start at the local comp. But things don't go as planned for Joe and life becomes a rollercoaster as he tries find what money can't buy! From the award-winning West End producers of Gangsta Granny and Awful Auntie comes this amazing new production of David Walliams' best-selling story! "I absolutely loved the BSC's terrific productions of Gangsta Granny and Awful Auntie so I can't wait to see their brand new production of Billionaire Boy! It promises to be a brilliant show!"
