The adaptation of David Walliams' children's book Gangsta Granny which was recently nominated for a UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children is currently on tour and will transfer to the West End at the Garrick Theatre from 1st August until 3rd September, with previews from 26 July.
Birmingham Stage Company's production is adapted by Neal Foster, the man behind the Horrible Histories shows including Barmy Britain - Part One, Two and Three and The Best of Barmy Britain. Gangtsta Granny tells the story of Ben, who is staying with his granny on Friday night and is expecting the same boring cabbage soup. What he doesn't realise is that his granny has a secret.
Walliams said: "I'm delighted that my Gangsta Granny is making her West End debut. It's my most popular book so it will be wonderful to see the Birmingham Stage Company's terrific adaptation in dazzling neon next summer."
