Beware all hipster dads – you will be the foundation of much hilarity. Roald Dahl hated beards apparently and the opening line of the book is “what a lot of hairy-faced men there are around nowadays”. Enter the disgusting and mean Twits, so vile that Mr Twit’s beard contains sardines and stilton, who mistreat Muggle-Wump monkeys and put Roly-Poly birds in their pies.
We can’t wait for this Curve and Rose Theatre Kingston’s production of Dahls’s revolting tale which is directed by rising star Max Webster (whose recent The Lorax at The Old Vic garnered rave reviews).
Expect the amusement, mischeviousness, joy and sheer repulsiveness of this justifiably much loved book, brought to life through a proliferation of pranks and an outstanding cast of actor-musicians and acrobats that you, the audience, become involved with as the monkeys teach the foul Twits a lesson. Gloriously horrid.
