Roald Dahl’s much-loved children’s tale The Twits is brought to the Royal Court stage, directed by John Tiffany.

Tony and Olivier Award winner John Tiffany (Once, Let The Right One In) directs a brand new stage version of Roald Dahl’s classic, much-loved children’s tale The Twits – coming to the Royal Court Theatre this Spring.

Mischievously adapted by acclaimed writer Enda Walsh (Once, Hunger), The Twits promises to bring a revolting revolution to the Royal Court stage in this major new production.


Mr and Mrs Twit are not very nice. In fact they’re extremely nasty. They’re nasty to each other, and they’re VILE to everyone else. They hold a family of monkeys hostage in a cage and force them to stand on their heads. ALL THE TIME. We told you they weren’t very nice. Can the monkeys find a way to show those vicious Twits what for?


Jason Watkins and Monica Dolan will play Mr and Mrs Twit, Sam Cox will play Yorkshire Terrier Man, Cait Davis will play Monkey Mum, Aimée-Ffion Edwards will play Monkey Daughter, Christine Entwisle will play Tattooed Fortune Teller Lady, Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins will play Monkey Son, Glyn Pritchard will play Monkey Father and Dwane Walcott will play Shy Waltzer Boy.


The Twits is directed by John Tiffany. Steven Hoggett is associate director and movement director, Martin Lowe is the composer and musical supervisor, design is by Chloe Lamford, lighting by Philip Gladwell and sound by Gregory Clarke. Adaptation from Roald Dahl’s story by Enda Walsh.
