The award-winning West End production of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny is set to visit Bath for the first time from Tuesday 27th March to Sunday 1st April as it appears in the Theatre Royal’s Main House for a run of 10 performances.

Recommended for everyone aged 5 to 105, family audiences can prepare to be thoroughly entertained as David Walliams’ best-selling children’s story is brought to life onstage by a cast of nine in this acclaimed theatre production adapted and directed by Neal Foster and presented by Birmingham Stage Company, the producers of Horrible Histories.

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 ever imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!

Both laugh-out-loud funny and thrilling, this ‘must-see’ show for children, parents and, of course, grannies too – also has some moving and truthful things to say about family relationships. Since premiering in 2015, the show has been touring the UK ever since, as well as enjoying a West End season during summer 2017. Earlier this month it was announced that the hit stage production has been shortlisted in the Best Family Entertainment category for the prestigious 2018 Olivier Awards.

David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny appears at the Theatre Royal Bath from Tuesday 27th March to Sunday 1st April. To purchase tickets contact the Theatre Royal Bath Box Office on 01225 448844 or visit
