hosted by Dinner At The Twits
Evening Standard Going Out
‘Entertainingly monstrous menu’
‘The most wow-factor-y experience going in London’
Mr and Mrs Twit are having a dinner party and YOU are invited.
Les Enfants Terribles theatre company and ebp, the creators of Olivier Award nominated ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND and THE GAME’S AFOOT, are for the first time creating one of Roald Dahl’s titles specifically for adults*, in collaboration with delicious gastronomy from Bompas & Parr and the creative wranglers at Creature of London.
Join Mr & Mrs Twit in their windowless house and ghastly garden for an evening you will never forget.
Your ticket includes the chance to fish the glass eye from your prickly cocktail apertif, hunt for concealed canapes and gruesome hors d’oeuvres, brave a baroque bird pie banquet and potentially perilous pudding, served with ½ bottle of wine or non-alcoholic drinks, all whilst experiencing 90 minutes of entertainment from the worst hosts ever before heading to the Muggle-Wumps Downside Up Cocktail Cavern.
*not for nasty, nosey little children
Please note: This show will contain loud noises and smoke effects.
