Roald Dahl's The Twits at the Royal Court

Casting just announced for Roald Dahl's The Twits at the Royal Court, mischievously adapted by Enda Walsh, directed by John Tiffany

Mr and Mrs Twit are not very nice. In fact they’re extremely nasty. They’re nasty to each other, and they’re VILE to everyone else. They hold a family of monkeys hostage in a cage and force them to stand on their heads. ALL THE TIME. We told you they weren’t very nice. Can the monkeys find a way to show those vicious Twits what for?

Say hello to Mr and Mrs Twit...
