The Play

After the successful 2015 adaptation of Mr Stink (which David Walliams described as “Magnificent!”), Heartbreak Productions returns with the theatrical premiere of David Walliams’ Ratburger, adapted for the outdoor stage.

Come and join the grand opening party of “Armitage’s Ices”, the ice cream parlour set up by 12-year-old Zoe and her Dad, and follow Zoe’s journey as she takes on the revolting characters that have proved to be one of the hallmarks of David Walliams’ appeal.

Ratburger Book

Our heroine has a profound love of animals and a dream of travelling the world that keep her going as she copes with her disgusting neighbours, her recently unemployed dad, and the menacing Burt (of Burt’s Burgers) who is after Zoe and her pet rat! Voted the top children’s book of the year in 2012, David Walliams’ Ratburger encourages us to support Zoe as she battles through life.

Suitable for those aged 7+ years.

Tickets are £12 for adults, £8 for children, or £35 for 2 adults and 2 children. Pre-booking is essential.
