Dinner with the Twits, an interactive theatrical dining experience that invites its audience to the worst dinner party in the world at the residence of the revolting Mr. and Mrs. Twit, will premiere at London’s The Vaults.
It will begin performances September 4 prior to an official opening September 14, for a run through October 30.
Presented by Les Enfants Terribles and ebp—the team behind Alice’s Adventures Underground that was Olivier-nominated for its run—in association with Bompas & Parr and Creature of London, it marks the first time one of Roald Dahl’s titles has been adapted into a production specifically for adults.
According to press materials, the evening will include a banquet of deliciously disgusting dishes, to be enjoyed with homemade cocktails, Mr. Twit’s special brew and Mrs. Twit’s potent punch.
Produced by Emma Brünjes, James Seager and Oliver Lansley with Creature of London, it is directed by Emma Earle, written by Oliver Lansley and Anthony Spargo and designed by Sam Wyer.
In a press statement, Lansley commented, “We are delighted to be presenting the first adaptation specifically created for adults of one of Roald Dahl’s hugely adored children’s books. We never really lose our sense of play, our relish in the bizarre and revolting. Dinner at the Twits will give adults the opportunity to explore those boundaries between disgust and delight, to come up close and personal with the hideous hairy Twits and to be taken on a multisensory journey through Dahl’s beguilingly bizarre world.”
