Don't be a Twit!

I Love The Twits!

Seriously, love it. I think it's probably my favourite Roald Dahl story of all time in the whole world, evah. And I adore the audio version read by Simon Callow. (I adore anything read by Simon Callow. He does an especially good Witches, too. But I digress...)

Anyway, if you hadn't already heard The Twits is coming to a theatre near you. (If you live anywhere near the Royal Court Theatre, Chelsea, that is.) The stage version of this perennial children's favourite has been adapted by award-winning playwright Enda Walsh (whose recent work includes the stage adaptation of the musical Once) and is being directed by John Tiffany.

It runs from 7 April - 31 May and in addition to the performances the award-winning theatre is offering free workshops to all 8 - 11 year olds.

Anyway, would you like to go? Would you like to go for free, gratis, buckshee? Because if you would, I've got a family ticket for up to four people to give away. All you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter giveaway app. below.

  2. The twits appeals to the whole family young and old

  3. Loved reading this as a child, such a good book. x

  4. I remember reading this as a little girl and love it just as much reading it to my own daughter :)

  5. It was one of my favourite books, Roald Dahl creates such wonderful characters and worlds. I love the evil tricks and pranks the Twits play on each other.

  6. Its lots of fun with briliant characters. We have so far read with my children, matilda, the twits & the witches & the twits is the favourite!

  7. I love how rude it is and the way they up the ante with all the awful things they do to each other!

  8. I love The Twits because it's a story I remember reading as a child but also a story I have recently read to my children, it's funny and great that The Twits get what's coming to them in the end.

  9. It's a true classic from my childhood - it'll live on forever through my kid(s) too! :)

  10. It's so funny. I laughed at it as a child and my children have laughed at it too.

  11. Because it is so descriptive, the characters really come to life, it would be really interesting to how they create these characters at the theatre

  12. It's funny and appeals to all age ranges, it's my sons Favorite book

  13. I love the picture and the imagination that it sparks

  14. It's funny. The Twits play hilarious pranks on one another. And Mr Twit's beard (of course the beard). And the monkeys do incredible acrobatics. And it's really funny when the boys jump out of the tree and have to run away with naked bottoms. Brilliant.

  15. We loved the bit with the stick the best

  16. I love that the relationship between them is like so many real life married couple but of course with that Roald Dahl magic thrown in.
