The Twits are about as horrible as you can imagine, and for those familiar with the book, this production brought them vividly to life !
Mr. Twit’s long bushy beard is filled with nasty bits of food and Mrs Twit is hunched over and moaning a lot – a group of colourful narrators help us navigate this well loved tale and encourage audience involvement and participation along the way…Mr. Twit has stolen a group of Mugglewump monkeys from the rainforest and their friend the Roly Poly bird attempts to save them before they end up as a mere circus act! In between some rather gross and gruesome pranks the Twits play on each other, we are able to see the mischievous monkeys plot their escape and with a little bit of help, play the ultimate trick in revenge.
An amazing adaptation of a much loved tale, these young actors are truly superb- great storytelling with enough silliness, dancing and a touch of terrifying terribleness to keep everyone utterly absorbed !!
My mini reviewer say : ” When he ate the worms – that was funny and everyone being all upside down.”
”I liked the shrinking part and the roly -poly bird too”
