Do you want to know why your spaghetti was squirmy and squishy? And why it had a nasty bitter taste? Because it was WORMS!
That’s just one of the horrible tricks Mrs Twit plays on Mr Twit, and she only does it because he puts a slimy frog in her bed. And he only does that because she puts her glass eye into his beer. And she only does that… well, you get the picture.
Mr and Mrs Twit loathe each other. They never wash and they live in a smelly old caravan next to a rotting tree. Bored of playing tricks on each other they decide to open a circus, capturing a family of monkeys and cruelly training them to perform in the ring. Only with the audience’s help will the Twits meet a sticky end and will the monkeys finally be set free.
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 more GIANT, even more FANTASTIC, even YUCKIER Dahl classic!
Illyria promises a slimily, stickily, revoltingly funny show, from the most popular children’s author in the world.
