Neal Foster’s adaptation of David Walliams’ popular children’s book Gangsta Granny transfers to London’s West End for a limited summer season in 2017. 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!

Presented by Birmingham Stage Company, the adaptation by Neal Foster comes from the company at the helm of the ever-popular Horrible Histories Barmy Britain series, which recently played a season at the Garrick Theatre. The West End debut of Walliams’ story premieres at the Garrick Theatre on July 26th, with an official press night on August 1st. Gangsta Granny is set to run until September 3rd 2017.
