The Twits by Roald Dahl

The Twits by Roald Dahl at Logie Steading, near Forres


At Logie Steading, near Forres

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. If you DON’T want to see someone tucking into worms thinking they’re spaghetti; if you DON’T want to see someone finding a glass eyeball in their beer; if you DON’T want to see someone picking scraps of rotting food from someone else’s beard and eating them – then DON’T SEE THIS SHOW!!!

In 2010 Illyria was the first UK open-air touring company to be granted permission to perform the work of Roald Dahl. Our highly acclaimed production of “James and the Giant Peach” was followed in 2011 with a sensational sellout season of “Fantastic Mr Fox”. Now Illyria returns with an even more Giant, even more Fantastic, even YUCKIER Dahl classic!
