Birmingham Stage Company has announced the return of its hit adaptation of David Walliams’ bestselling book, Gangsta Granny, to the West End.
The Olivier Award and UK Theatre Award nominated production opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited two-week run, opening on 16 August 2018, with previews from 14 August, and running until 26 August.
David Walliams’ most popular story Gangsta Granny is back in the West End for two weeks following a national tour. The production was nominated for the Best Entertainment & Family Award at the Oliviers.
It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake to eat and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be soooooo boring! But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret – and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could possibly imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!
David Walliams said: “Gangsta Granny is my most popular book so it’s wonderful to see the brilliant BSC’s terrific adaptation back in the West End again. It’s a fantastic, award-winning show – and so much better than the book!”
Gangsta Granny is adapted and directed by Neal Foster, design is by Jackie Trousdale, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Nick Sagar, music by Jak Poore and choreography by Paul Chantry and Rae Piper of Chantry Dance Company.

In addition to this, BSC has been touring Horrible Histories Live on Stage for 11 years throughout the UK, Ireland, Dubai, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.
