At Christmas 2013 a TV version of Gangsta Granny was shown on BBC One with an all-star cast including David Walliams himself. Gangsta Granny went straight to Number 1 in the children’s book charts and his books have been translated into no fewer than 30 languages.Birmingham Stage Company – the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories, George’s Marvellous Medicine and Tom’s Midnight Garden – are bringing David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny to the Opera House, Manchester, from Wednesday 7 June to Sunday 11 June 2017.

David Walliams said at the first night of Gangsta Granny on stage: What a fantastic show! Superb! And so much better than the book!”

 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 so 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!

“All you can do in this life is follow your dreams. Otherwise you’re just wasting your time”, explains Gangsta Granny.


Gangsta Granny is a must for all families as the show will be enjoyed by everyone aged from five to 105! It’s both laugh out loud funny with some brilliant comic scenes but also has some very moving and truthful things to say about family relationships.

    My favourite joke in the world:
    Q:What do you call a man with a rabbit up his bum?
    Yes my family groans too but I love it

    It’s 1957, and Bobby goes to pick up his date, Peggy Sue. Peggy Sue’s father answers the door and invites him in.
    He asks Bobby what they’re planning to do on the date. Bobby tells him that they’ll probably go to the malt shop or a drive-in movie.
    Peggy Sue’s father suggests, “Why don’t you kids go out and screw? I hear all of the kids are doing it.”
    Bobby is shocked. “Excuse me, sir?”
    “Oh yes,” he replies. “Peggy Sue really likes to screw. She’ll screw all night if we let her.”
    Peggy Sue comes downstairs and announces that she’s ready to go.
    About 20 minutes later, Peggy Sue rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her and screams, “Dad! The Twist! It’s called the Twist!”
