Description

Mr and Mrs Twit are nasty disgusting people who enjoy playing horrible tricks but, when the Roly Poly Bird visits from Africa, their whole world is literally turned upside down! Adapted from Roald Dahl's classic story, join storyteller John Kirk as he invites you into a brilliantly bonkers world of upside-down monkeys, wormy spaghetti and sticky-hug-tight glue. This storytelling is presented with kind permission from The Roald Dahl Story Company.

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 47 days ago

Seasoned entertainer John Kirk’s take doesn’t opt for scale, nor does it seem especially keen to engage with Dahl’s book on a critical level. This is a show squarely aimed at children, and they are pretty much guaranteed to have a rollicking good time.
