DAVID WALLIAMS’ BEST SELLER TO HIT THE STAGE
David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny
Darlington Civic Theatre
Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th May 2016
Watch out! The cabbage-crunching, criminal master-mind, Gangsta Granny is coming to Darlington Civic Theatre later this month.
Birmingham Stage Company, the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories, are bringing their world premiere of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny to Darlington Civic Theatre from Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th May, prior to a West End run.
Walliams, who is one of the judges on the popular Britain’s Got Talent TV show and creator of the ground-breaking comedy series, Little Britain, is now the best-selling author for children in the country.
David began his publishing career at Harper Collins in early 2008 with his debut novel The Boy in the Dress. Then, after writing two other popular stories, in 2011 he published Gangsta Granny, which was shortlisted for both The Red House Children’s Book Award and for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.
In 2013 a TV version of Gangsta Granny was shown on BBC One with an all-star cast including David Walliams himself. Gangsta Granny went straight to number 1 in the children’s book charts and his books have been translated into no fewer than 30 languages.
David Walliams said at the first night of Gangsta Granny from the stage at Birmingham New Alexandra Theatre : “What a fantastic show! Superb! And so much better than the book!”.
It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be sooooooooo boring! But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret – and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!
Gangsta Granny is a must for all families as the show will be enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105! It’s both laugh out loud funny with some brilliant comic scenes but also has some very moving and truthful things to say about family relationships..
Gangsta Granny is at Darlington Civic Theatre from Tuesday 24 to Saturday 28 May.
