The Twits 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 06, Aug 2013
This is the tale of the quite frankly, disgusting Mr & Mrs Twit which will both delight and revolt the audience at the same time! It takes the key events from the popular Roald Dahl’s book and they manage to condense it expertly into a 50 minute show. The costumes were bright, colourful and fun and the limited props that the Fringe allows were used effectively while the cast were engaging and seemed to genuinely enjoy their performance.
The audience participation factor was high with props hidden under chairs, children being invited to come up on stage to whack Mrs Twit with an inflatable hammer until she woke up. There were frogs in beds, banana skins flying and the ever famous worms in spaghetti! This is a must see for any Dahl fan and a perfect introduction for those who have yet to discover his genius.
This is a show which should be on everyones to do list this Fringe, it’s a terrific show and well worth a visit.
August 4th – August 10th
