The Playhouse is welcoming funny-man David Walliams’ hit book Gangsta Granny live on stage, and it is sure to have you in stitches whether you are five years old or 105 years old.

Ahead of a run in the West End, this hilarious play will be welcomed to Weston as a treat for all the family.

Ben is not looking forward to spending time with his granny.

He thinks it will be boring and full of plenty of food made with her favourite ingredient – cabbage.

Cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake will surely all be on the menu.

But little does he know is she is actually far more exciting than he could ever imagine and has a host of surprises in store.

A Friday night adventure becomes more of a treat for young Ben as he meets his very own gangsta granny.

David Walliams may be better known for his risky characters in shows such as Little Britain and Come Fly With Me – and for his stint as a judge on popular television show Britain’s Got Talent – but he has now shown another side to his talent.

He is now one of the country’s best-selling children’s authors and even commented the opening night of Gangsta Granny was ‘better than the book’.

Gangsta Granny will be at The Playhouse from October 19-22, with performances at 1.30pm and 7pm on October 19, 10.30am and 7pm on October 20 and 21 and 11am and 3pm on October 22.

Tickets, priced £18 for adults, £15.50 for children and £60 for family tickets, are available by calling 01934 645544 or online at www.theplayhouse.co.uk
