Seymour Centre and shake & stir theatre co present

Roald Dahl's The Twits

10 - 12 May 2023

After smash-hit showings at QPAC and Sydney Opera House, Roald Dahl’s gruesome twosome, the Twits, are ready to delight and disgust Seymour Centre audiences in May 2023.

Mr and Mrs Twit are the nastiest couple you could ever hope (not) to meet. Both are on a quest to be meaner than the other—but is there someone out there who can out-twit the Twits?

Full of trickery and wickedly funny pranks, Dahl’s adored classic encourages us to treat others with love and care and proves that if you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams.

From shake & stir theatre co, the award-winning team behind the sold-out seasons of Fantastic Mr Fox, Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts and George’s Marvellous Medicine, The Twits is unmissable fun for all ages, packed with Dahlicious mischief, hilarious mayhem and big belly laughs.

You’ve read the book—now it’s time to experience this family classic from the wacky mind of the world’s no. 1 storyteller live on stage.

You won’t believe your (glass) eyes.
