World Premiere of David Walliams' GANGSTA GRANNY - Manchester Dates Announced
Watch out! The cabbage-crunching, criminal mastermind Gangsta Granny is coming to Manchester next month!
Birmingham Stage Company - the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories, George's Marvellous Medicine and Tom's Midnight Garden - are bringing their world premiere of David Walliams' Gangsta Granny to the Opera House, Manchester, from Wednesday 7 June to Sunday 11 June 2017.
Walliams is one of the judges on the popular Britain's Got Talent TV show, and creator of the ground-breaking comedy series Little Britain and Big School, 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.
At Christmas 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 on stage: "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 so 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!
"All you can do in this life is follow your dreams. Otherwise you're just wasting your time", explains Gangsta Granny.
Gangsta Granny is a must for all families as the show will be enjoyed by everyone aged from five 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.
