Birmingham Stage Company, the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories and George's Marvellous Medicine are bringing their world premiere of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny to the Assembly Hall Theatre, Royal Tunbridge Wells, from Wed 21 – Sun 25 June.
Walliams’, who is one of the judges on the popular Britain’s Got Talent TV show that finished just last weekend and creator of the ground-breaking comedy series, Little Britain and Big School, is now the best-selling author for children in the country!
David began his publishing career at Harper Collins in early 2008 with his debut novel The Boy in the Dress. Then, after writing two other popular stories, in 2011 he published Gangsta Granny, which was shortlisted for both The Red House Children’s Book Award and for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. At Christmas 2013 a TV version of Gangsta Granny was shown on BBC One with an all-star cast including David Walliams himself. Gangsta Granny went straight to number 1 in the children’s book charts and his books have been translated into no fewer than 30 languages. David Walliams’ said at the first night of Gangsta Granny from the stage at Birmingham New Alexandra Theatre:
'What a fantastic show! Superb! And so much better than the book!'
'All you can do in this life is follow your dreams. Otherwise you’re just wasting your time' - Gangsta Granny.
