Curve and Rose Theatre Kingston present Roald Dahl's The Twits
Adapted by David Wood
Directed by Mark Webster
Extra performance added due to popular demand. Tickets now available for Saturday 25 March 10.30am.
“Mr. Twit was a twit. He was born a twit. And, now at the age of sixty, he was a bigger twit than ever.”
The Twits really are the most spiteful and revolting couple you could ever hope to meet. 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.
