It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing - staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure - it’s going to be sooooooooo boring! But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret - and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could possibly imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!

The new adaptation, from the makers of Horrible Histories, of David Walliams’ children's novel arrives in the West End.

Ages 5+

(Some reviews are from the initial tour)

Garrick Theatre [West End]

“Birmingham Stage Company creates an ingenious and lively adaptation of David Walliams’ bestseller. ”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“An infectious exuberance that answers the writing’s zest and theatricality... Every comic opportunity is grasped. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Tear-jerking stuff. In a good way, although be ready for an educational chat with your child afterwards... Added fart jokes.”

Kate Maltby (The Times)

“As sparkly as a 'Strictly' costume and properly moving to boot... Seriously silly fun and rather bonkers in a very British way.”

Miriam Gillinson (Arts Desk, Time Out)

“A surprising number of very poignant moments in the piece, brought beautifully and carefully to the fore by an excellent cast.”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Good nature and a gentle comedy... Commendably fresh... A lively show that prompts self-examination.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Very, very funny and at times deeply touching... The entire cast are superb with a host of stand-out performances... A triumph.”
