Following a hugely successful tour of the UK, the stage version of the terrific tale was recently nominated for a UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People.
Gangsta Granny follows Ben, a young boy who is once again staying with his granny on a boring Friday night. Ben expects the same old grizzly cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake – but what he doesn’t realise is that this groovy Granny has her very own secret! Soon, Fridays become more exciting than he could ever image, as he embarks on night-time adventures with his very own Gangsta Granny!
Kids adore Walliams' books and they loved this show - every comic opportunity is grasped
Brilliantly adapted - a cracker of a show!
It’s all seriously silly fun and rather bonkers in a very British way.
The secret of its success is simple: it appeals simultaneously to the kinship between the young and old and their shared sense of neglect.
The cast – lead by Tompkins and Ashley Cousins as Ben – are uniformly super.
