Spare Parts Puppet Theatre presents ROALD DAHL’S THE TWITS
A new razztwizzling adaption of Roald Dahl’s very irreverent classic, The Twits takes you into the world of grumpy old couple, Mr and Mrs Twit who haven’t had a good thought or done a kind thing in years. They like nothing more than dreaming up terrible tricks to play on each other. They are bound to put a grizzly grin on your face!
“Mr and Mrs Twit are terrible people but very funny characters and it’s so satisfying seeing Muggle-Wump and the Roly-Poly Bird outwit them,” he said. “Roald Dahl has a special gift for making fun of adults who treat children unfairly and our heroes can only win by breaking the rules and playing a few tricks of their own. As laugh-out-loud entertaining as The Twits is, it is a great show for encouraging us all to think about how we treat each other.”
The Twits is a ringbeller adventure of scrottiness and goodness, rebellion and justice. The show’s gloriumptious blend of comedy and puppetry is the perfect way to have a whoopsy wiffling time this summer with the whole family.
Drag the chiddlers away from the telly telly bunkum box and join us for this razztwizzling adaption of The Twits - Roald Dahl in his purest form – unsentimental, grotesque and a lot of fun!
Mr and Mrs Twits, the most horrible people ever to live on the stage of the earth! How unpleasant is Mr Twit, a hairy-faced, grubby and messy old man! How mean-spirited Mrs Twits, whose once pretty face, now ugly and reflecting her consumption of nasty thoughts! 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 spaghetti – yuck! Mr Twit convinces Mrs Twit has the dreaded shrinks – how mean! Insults are flying left, right and centre and a tag game of revenge and out-trickery is neverending. Meanwhile, Muggle-Wump, a poor little monkey is held captive by Mr Twits. Obsessed with putting on The Great Upside-Down Monkey Circus, Mr Twits relentlessly trains Muggle-Wump to perform death defying stunts, punishing the monkey as he sees fit. Poor little Muggle-Wump. But! Fate changes for Muggle-Wump with the arrival of Roly-Poly, a glorious bird full of grace and pomposity. Together a plot is devised to secure Muggle-Wump’s freedom and punish The Twits forever.
