Having been at the forefront of the West End revival this summer, entertaining families with two shows, Billionaire Boyand Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part Five, Birmingham Stage Company will be returning to London this Christmas with their Olivier Award nominated production of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny, arriving at the Bloomsbury Theatre from 9th December through to 9th January 2022.
When Friday night comes along, Ben knows it only means one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be sooooooooo boring! What he doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret, and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!
Gangsta Granny is a must-see for all the family, as the show will be enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105! It’s funny and thrilling, with important things to say about family relationships and the treatment of the elderly. The show originally premiered in 2015 and has since enjoyed two West End seasons, for which it was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2018.
David Walliams has revolutionised reading for children and has become one of the most influential children’s writers today. Since the publication of his ground-breaking first novel, The Boy in the Dress (2008), Walliams has seen unprecedented growth with global sales exceeding 44 million copies, and his books translated into 55 languages. The popularity of all his books, especially Gangsta Granny, looks set to continue for generations to come.
