The Twits
One of the most popular works by Roald Dahl can be seen at Northampton's Royal & Derngate just in time for the half term holidays.

The Twits tells the tale of the most spiteful and revolting couple you could ever hope to meet.

Mr Twit has a very hairy face, his beard is spiky and smelly and contains cornflakes, sardines and even some Stilton.

Mrs Twit is equally as foul and she hates Mr Twit just as much as Mr Twit hates her.

They spend their days playing wicked tricks on each other and mistreating Muggle-Wump monkeys.

However their lifestyle might not last for very much longer because the monkeys have a cunning plan that will teach the terrible Twits a lesson.

The show has gone on a national tour after opening in Hong Kong and a highly anticipated run at the Curve in Leicester last Christmas.

And a lot will be asked of the actors, who not only play instruments throughout the show but also boast a host of acrobatic skills.

The Twits can be seen from Tuesday, February 14, to Saturday, February 18, with performances taking place at numerous times throughout the run.
