Gangsta Granny open air performance (Heartbreak productions)

Children’s Theatre (7+): David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny

Set in the stunning surrounds of the Weald & Downland Living Museum enjoy open air, family fun theatre. Introducing for 2019 the David Walliam’s family hit ‘Gansta Granny’ for 2-nights only on 8 & 11 August, be quick and book – Don’t miss out!

Meet Ben, an 11-year-old want-to-be plumber fed up with spending his Friday nights at granny’s. All she wants to do is play scrabble and eat cabbage – not exactly his idea of fun!

Hungry and bored Ben goes searching for something more edible in the kitchen and stumbles upon an old biscuit tin. The tin holds more than just digestives, however, it contains Granny’s biggest secret…

Ben’s Granny is an international jewel thief – and she needs his help to pull off her biggest heist yet, stealing the crown jewels!

Heartbreak productions invites you to share in this exciting escapade, a David Walliams best seller adapted for the outdoor stage. Join us, Ben, and his Gangsta Granny on their grandest adventure full of forbidden fun. It could be very hungry work so come prepared with picnics and appropriate outdoor gear.
