Street Talk

The story shook me when I read it and it has clung to me as has most of Kafka's work, Steven Berkoff said of The Metamorphosis. Find out more these writers and the powerful novella adapted by Berkoff for the stage and playing at the Street from the 17th of August.

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.” – Roald Dahl, The Twits.

Being the delightful humans they are, Mr and Mrs Twit spend their days playing nasty tricks on each other. Mrs Twit puts worms in Mr Twit’s spaghetti-yuck! Mr Twit convinces Mrs Twit she has the dreaded shrinks-how mean! Insults are flying left, right and centre and a tag game of revenge and out-trickery is never ending.

Meanwhile, Muggle-Wump, a poor little monkey is held captive by Mr Twit. But! Fate changes for Muggle-Wump with the arrival of Roly-Poly, a glorious bird full of grace and pomposity. Together they devise a plot to secure Muggle-Wump’s freedom and punish the Twits forever.
 

Winter school holidays brings a very irreverent adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Twits from Australia’s flagship puppetry company Spare Parts Puppet Theatre. Get ready for a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre, and an experience that’s bound to put a grizzly grin on your face!

From the author of classics such as Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Revolting Rhymes  and The BFG comes The Twits. Perfect for 4+.
