The Summer outdoor theatre season continues with Roald Dahl’s classic The Twits. A great performace for all the family to enjoy. 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 because 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. The local birds try to rescue the monkeys, but only with the audience’s help will the Twits meet a sticky end and the monkeys finally be set free.

Illyria promises a slimily, stickily, revoltingly funny show, from the most popular children’s author in the world on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 August at 3.30pm.
Tickets cost £13.50 for adults £8.50 for children and £39 for a family (2+2).
