Dahl’s The Twits Are Coming To The Playhouse

ROALD Dahl’s despicable Twits are phizz-whizzing their way to the Liverpool Playhouse this February. Curve and Rose Theatre Kingston’s production of Roald Dahl’s The Twits comes to the Playhouse from 21st – 25th February and has been programmed to coincide with the Dahl 100 anniversary. Based on the book by Roald Dahl and adapted for the stage by David Wood, The Twits tells the tale of the most spiteful and revolting couple you could ever hope to meet. Mr Twit has a very hairy face. His beard is spiky and smelly. It also contains cornflakes, sardines and even some stilton. Mrs Twit is equally as foul and she hates Mr Twit just as much as Mr Twit hates her. They spend their days playing wicked tricks on each other and mistreating Muggle-Wump monkeys. They also have a particularly sticky trick to catch Roly-Poly birds for their bird pies. But not for much longer because the monkeys have a cunning plan to teach those terrible twits a lesson. Max Webster (The Lorax at The Old Vic), directs a cast of actor-musicians and acrobats alongside a creative team including designer and Linbury Prize finalist, Georgia Lowe, lighting designer, Joshua Pharo, movement director, Deborah Pugh, sound designer, Carolyn Downing, and composer, Dougal Irvine, who returns to create new songs and music for the production following last year’s The Witches.
