David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny raps back into West End

She’s already torn up the West End stage with a UK Theatre and Olivier Award-nominated run last year. And now David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny is to return to in London this Summer, playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited two week run.

Based on the comedian’s bestselling book of the same name, Gangsta Granny is the Birmingham Stage Company’s brilliant theatrical adaptation. The show returns to the West End from 14 – 26 August.

It’s Friday night, and Ben’s off to stay with Granny. Surely cabbage soup, cabbage pie, and cabbage cake lie in store – it’s going to be soooo boring! But what Ben couldn’t have imagined is that his Granny has a very big secret – and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could possibly imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!

Walliams said of the announcement, “Gangsta Granny is my most popular book so it’s wonderful to see the brilliant BSC’s terrific adaptation back in the West End again. It’s a fantastic, award-winning show – and so much better than the book!”

Gangsta Granny live has been created by Neal Foster and The Birmingham Stage Company. In addition to this, BSC has been touring Horrible Histories Live On Stage for eleven years across the UK, Ireland, Dubai, Qatar, Australia and more, with Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain – Part Four playing at the Apollo Theatre from 2 August.

Gangsta Granny is adapted and directed by Neal Foster, design is by Jackie Trousdale, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Nick Sagar, music by Jak Poore and choreography by Paul Chantry & Rae Piper of Chantry Dance Company.

Tickets go on general sale on Thursday (3 May).

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
