Family: Roald Dahl’s THE TWITS from Unicorn Theatre

There’s nothing better for family time than having a story read to us. But it’s even better when the story is read as a theatre show, with lots of fun and surprising touches along the way.

Family audiences can now enjoy the Unicorn Theatre’s three-part telling of Roald Dahl’s THE TWITS for free online until March 3rd.

Imagine the worst people you can think of, can you do that? Good. Then you’re just about ready to meet Mr and Mrs Twit, the nastiest couple you could ever hope (not) to meet.

Welcome to the Unicorn’s theatrical reading of one of Roald Dahl’s best-loved books about a most despicable couple, The Twits, the clever Muggle-Wump and the magnificent Roly-Poly Bird. This unabridged reading, filmed in the Unicorn Theatre, is gleeful, gunge-filled digital storytelling aimed at children aged 6 – 12. It is directed by Ned Bennett.

As part of Unicorn Online, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the theatre are offering a range of free online theatrical experiences that they hope will be enjoyed by children across London, the UK and beyond.

Of course, the Unicorn is currently closed and like all arts organisations, its future is uncertain. If you are able to support them with a donation of any size, then your help will be enormously appreciated, I know.
