4th September – 30th October 2016
Roald Dahl surely left most people with a big impression on their childhoods. The author of countless classic novels had a wild imagination with stories that stayed in the memory. 2016 is 100 years since the birth of Mr Dahl. To celebrate there are countless events to mark the occasion. One can see all that is going on at www.roalddahl.com/roalddahl100. An exciting prospect then has surely emerged with the team behind Les Enfants Terribles and ebp in association with Bompas & Parr and Creature of London. If those names do not ring bells with you, then let us introduce. Les Enfants Terribles and ebp were behind the very successful Alice’s Adventures Underground.
Roald Dahl’s two most bizarre characters, Mr and Mrs Twit are the focus of their new production that sees a banquet of deliciously disgusting dishes. Why not enjoy this with homemade cocktails, Mr Twit’s special brew and Mrs Twit’s potent punch.
“We are delighted to be presenting the first adaptation specifically created for adults of one of Roald Dahl’s hugely adored children’s books. We never really lose our sense of play, our relish in the bizarre and revolting. Dinner at the Twits will give adults the opportunity to explore those boundaries between disgust and delight, to come up close and personal with the hideous hairy Twits and to be taken on a multisensory journey through Dahl’s beguilingly bizarre world.” Oliver Lansley, of Les Enfants Terribles.
It seems a perfect opportunity then to fish the glass eye from your cocktail and dine on a slice of bird pie. Be entertained by your horrible hosts The Twits the creation of macabre humour master Mr Dahl.
“We have always been fascinated by food taboos, and the gleefully grotesque universe of the Twits seems to us the perfect place to probe the limits of gastronomic experimentation. We want guests at Dinner at the Twits to be titillated, intrigued and surprised, and we promise that squeamishness will give way to scrumptiousness as you open your minds and your mouths…” Harry Parr, of Bompas & Parr.
