Roald Dahl's The Twits
Spare Parts Puppet Theatre
Mr and Mrs Twit, the most horrible people ever to live on the stage of the earth! How unpleasant is Mr Twit, a hairy-faced, grubby and messy old man! How mean-spirited Mrs Twit, whose once pretty face, now ugly and reflecting her consumption of nasty thoughts!
Muggle-Wump, a poor little monkey is held captive by Mr Twit. Obsessed with putting on The Great Upside-Down Monkey Circus, Mr Twit relentlessly trains Muggle-Wump to perform death defying stunts, punishing the monkey as he sees fit. Poor little Muggle-Wump.
But! Fate changes for Muggle-Wump with the arrival of Roly-Poly, a glorious bird full of grace and pomposity. Together, a plot is devised to secure Muggle-Wump’s freedom and punish The Twits forever.
