Gangsta Granny at the Garrick Theatre

Garrick Theatre, 2 Charing Cross Road, London, WC2H 0HH

David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny receives its West End premiere at the Garrick Theatre.

Presented by Birmingham Stage Company, the adaptation by Neal Foster comes from the company at the helm of the ever-popular Horrible Histories Barmy Britain series, which recently played a season at the Garrick Theatre.

Gangsta Granny will run from 26 July 2017 until 3 September 2017 at the Garrick Theatre.


Gangsta Granny follows Ben, a young boy who is once again staying with his granny on a boring Friday night.

Ben expects the same old grizzly cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake – but what he doesn’t realise is that this groovy Granny has her very own secret!

Soon, Fridays become more exciting than he could ever image, as he embarks on night-time adventures with his very own Gangsta Granny!


The cast features Gilly Tompkins and Ashley Cousins.


Adapted and directed by Neal Foster it features design by Jackie Trousdale, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Nick Sagar, music by Jak Poore and choreography by Paul Chantry & Rae Piper of Chantry Dance Company.
