Stadium Tour announced for David Walliams' best-selling novel Grandpa's Great Escape

David Walliams' best-selling novel Grandpa's Great Escape will be adapted for the stage and embark on a stadium tour in December opening in Birmingham on 23rd December before visiting  London, Sheffield, Nottingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Liverpool, where it ends  on 4th January.

The original 2015 book, which was adapted for TV in 2018, follows a retired World War Two flying ace, who is forced to live in an old folk's home run by a wicked matron. Casting for the production is to be announced.

Directed by Sean Foley (The Painkiller) and penned by Kevin Cecil (Little Britain), the arena tour  sees a variety of London landmarks brought to the stage, as well as a life-size Spitfire, created by Stufish Productions.

Walliams said: "We're not just turning it into a live show, but into a spectacular live arena show for all the family this Christmas. Being in arenas means we can have a life-size Spitfire, a tank, the London landscape and a dramatic escape from the Imperial War Museum. It's great because we can really go to town with all of those elements and this story demands that scale."
