Gangsta Granny went straight to number 1 in the children’s book charts and his books have been translated into no fewer than 50 languages.

David Walliams’ said at the first night of Gangsta Granny from the

stage at Birmingham New Alexandra Theatre: “What a fantastic show! It’s truly brilliant! And so much better than the book!”

Gangsta Granny is the story of Ben and his grandmother.

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, and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be sooooooooo 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 ever imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!

Gangsta Granny is show that will be enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105!

It’s both laugh out loud funny and thrilling, but also has some very moving and truthful things to say about family relationships.
