Gangsta Granny

gangsta-granny_largeDavid Walliams’ bestselling children’s book Gangsta Granny receives a West End transfer in a delightful page-to-stage adaptation by Horrible Histories’ Neal Foster. Premiering in 2015, the production by Birmingham Stage Company was recently nominated for a UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People. Now, Gangsta Granny embarks on a UK tour before sneaking into London’s Garrick Theatre for a limited summer run in 2017.

Gangsta Granny follows Ben, a young boy who is staying at his Granny’s on a typical Friday night. Prepared for a boring night in, Ben knows that he will be presented with the usual cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake – bleurgh! But what he doesn’t know is that his robbing relative harbours a secret bigger than he could image! Quickly, boring Friday nights in turn into adventurous nights out, as Ben and his Granny become gangstas!

In 2013, Gangsta Granny was made into a BBC Christmas special, starring Joanna Lumley, David Walliams, Miranda Hart and Julia McKenzie.
