Roald Dahl's The Twits online


Directed by Ned Bennett

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.

The Unicorn Theatre is overjoyed to be able to share our brand new 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 our theatre, is gleeful, gunge-filled digital storytelling aimed at children aged 6 - 12.

Available for free on our YouTube and The Guardian's website from 5 September, 10am until 30 November 2020. The story is in three parts, but the videos will be released all at once so that you can enjoy them whenever, and wherever, you want.

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