Hunstanton open-air staging of smash hit by David Walliams

More news, no ads


There is an outdoor theatre treat in Hunstanton taking place at the Community Centre on Thursday.

The Heartbreak Theatre Company return once more with a rip-roaring open-air production of David Walliams’ smash hit book Gangsta Granny.

Here we 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, which is not exactly his idea of fun!

Hungry and bored, Ben goes searching for something more edible in the kitchen and stumbles on an old biscuit tin.

The tin holds more than just digestives, however, it contains Granny’s biggest secret...

This is Walliams’ bestseller adapted for the outdoor stage. Bring a picnic to enjoy it to the full.
