WIN Family tickets to Roald Dahl’s THE TWITS at the Rose Theatre, Kingston on Thames

Do you have plans for the Easter holidays? I’m excited to say, ours include going to see The Twits at the Rose Theatre, Kingston-Upon-Thames.

The Twits is a co-production between the Rose Theatre and Curve Leicester. It’s the same team behind The Witches, another adaptation of a Roald Dahl book, which we saw at the Rose Theatre last year. You can read our review of The Witches here. It was splendid, so I have high hopes for The Twits.

The lovely people at the Rose Theatre are offering readers of the Pigeon Pair and Me a set of four tickets to see The Twits on Wednesday 5 April, at 5.30pm. Will you be near enough to go on that date? If so, do enter the easy competition below – just enter your email address into the Rafflecopter form to log on.

The Twits

In the meantime, here’s what the critics are saying about The Twits:

Mr. Twit was a twit. He was born a twit. And, now at the age of sixty, he was a bigger twit than ever.

Mr Twit has a very hairy face. His beard is spiky and smelly. It also contains cornflakes, sardines and even some stilton.

Mrs Twit is equally as foul and she hates Mr Twit just as much as Mr Twit hates her.

The Twits really are the most spiteful and revolting couple you could ever hope to meet. They spend their days playing wicked tricks on each other and mistreating Muggle-Wump monkeys. They also have a particularly sticky trick to catch Roly-Poly birds for their bird pies.

The Twits

But not for much longer because the monkeys have a cunning plan to teach those terrible twits a lesson.

The Twits

Rose Theatre Kingston and Curve Leicester’s mischievous new production, directed by Max Webster (The Lorax at The Old Vic), promises to be just as disgusting and repulsive as earth worms disguised as spaghetti – the perfect Easter treat for all the family.

★★★★ ‘A deliciously horrid tale told with relish and affection ‘ The Stage

Recommended for ages 6+.

    It must be Willy Wonka – eccentric inventor who defines himself by his chocolates. I love the language he uses. He appears selfish and demanding but deep down his heart is soft as a marshmallow. Plus who wouldn’t love to leave in the chocolate factory…..

    He has so many great characters in his books. Matilda was always my favourite but I love all the children’s characters in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory….more so than Williw Wonka himself.
