Info Cast & Creatives Gallery


 Join us for this new adaption of Roald Dahl’s The Twits in it’s purest form – unsentimental, grotesque and a lot of fun. A comedy of rebellion and justice, this high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre will delight the young and the young at heart!

Mr and Mrs Twit, the most horrible people ever to live on the earth! Being the delightful humans they are, Mr and Mrs Twit spend their days playing dirty tricks on each other. Mrs Twit puts worms in Mr Twit‘s spaghetti! Mr Twit convinces Mrs Twit that she has the dreaded shrinks!

Meanwhile, Muggle-Wump the monkey is held captive by the Twits. Obsessed with putting on The Great Upside-Down Monkey Circus, the Twits relentlessly train Muggle-Wump to perform death defying stunts, punishing the little monkey as they see fit. 

But fate changes with the arrival of Roly-Poly, a glorious bird full of grace and pomposity and together a plot is devised to secure Muggle-Wump’s freedom and punish The Twits forever.
