The long-awaited arrival of David Walliams' best-selling book live on stage is almost over, as the Playhouse welcomes Gangsta Granny.

Walliams has become one of the country’s best-selling children’s authors and one of his most successful books is now making its way to the West End after a trip to Weston.

Young Ben is not looking forward to spending the evening with his boring granny.

But little does he know she has a secret which could change his view of her forever.

Cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake may still be on the menu for the young boy but the hidden talents of his granny are not exactly what he ordered.

This production has been created by Birmingham Stage Company and the show made its debut in the city.

Opening night was described by Walliams as ‘so much better than the book’.

Gangsta Granny will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, from Wednesday to October 22.

There will be performances at 7pm from Wednesday to October 21 and 1.30pm on Wednesday.

There will also be performances at 10.30am on October 20 and 21. Performances on October 22 will be at 11am and 3pm.

Tickets, priced £18 for adults, £15.50 for children and £60 for a family ticket, are available by contacting 01934 645544 or online via
