by Roald Dahl
adapted by David Wood
Do you want to know why your spaghetti was squirmy and squishy? And why it had a nasty bitter taste? Because it was WORMS!
In 2010 Illyria was the first UK open-air touring company to be granted permission to perform the work of Roald Dahl. Our highly acclaimed production of James and the Giant Peach was followed in 2011 with a sensational sellout season of Fantastic Mr Fox. Now Illyria returns with an even BIGGER Dahl classic!
Mr and Mrs Twit never wash, and they live in a smelly old caravan. Bored of playing cruel tricks on each other, they decide to open a circus. They capture a family of monkeys and brutally train them to perform in the ring. The local birds try to help by tricking the Twits into believing the world has turned upside down and dropping glue into their hair. Only when the Twits have met a sticky end, and only if the audience plays its part, can the monkeys finally be released.
Illyria promises a slimily, stickily, revoltingly funny show, from the most popular children's author in the world. If you DON'T want to see someone finding a glass eyeball in their beer; if you DON'T want to see someone picking scraps of food from someone else's beard and eating them; if you DON'T want to see someone tucking into worms thinking they're spaghetti - then DON'T SEE THIS SHOW!!!
