The world premiere of the country’s best-selling author for children, David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny is taking place at Swansea Grand Theatre from Wednesday, March 29 until Saturday, April 1.

It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny. There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure, it’s going to be boring. But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny.

David began his publishing career at Harper Collins in early 2008 with his debut novel The Boy in the Dress. Then, after writing two other popular stories, in 2011 he published Gangsta Granny, which was shortlisted for both The Red House Children’s Book Award and for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. At Christmas 2013 a TV version of Gangsta Granny was shown on BBC One with an all-star cast, including David Walliams himself.

Gangsta Granny is a must for all families as the show will be enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105! It’s both laugh out loud funny with some brilliant comic scenes, but also has some very moving and truthful things to say about family relationships.

Tickets for this fantastic family show are available from the Box Office on 01792 475715 or can be purchased online at and are £10.00 - £18.50, a family ticket for four at £60.00 and a schools’ price of £8.50 per pupil.

Evening performances begin at 7pm, matinee on Wednesday at 1.30pm, Thursday and Friday at 10.30am and Saturday at 2.30pm.
