David Walliams

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 went straight to number 1 in the
children's book charts and his books have been translated into no fewer than 50 languages.
David Walliams' said at the first night of Gangsta Granny from the stage at Birmingham New
Alexandra Theatre : "What a fantastic show! It's truly brilliant! And so much better than the
book!".

Gangsta Granny is the story of Ben and his grandmother. 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 sooooooooo 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!

"All you can do in this life is follow your dreams. Otherwise you're just wasting your time" Gangsta
Granny

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 and thrilling but also has some very moving and truthful things to say
about family relationships. The show was premiered in 2015 and has been touring the UK ever
since as well as enjoying a West End season in summer 2017.

"Even the scene changes are fun!" - * * * * The Sunday Times
"What a fantastic show! It's truly brilliant! And so much better than the book!" - David Walliams
