Illyria Theatre Company is to return to Banchory on July 14 to perform one of Roald Dahl’s best-loved stories, ‘The Twits’ at Crathes Castle.

“Do you want to know why your spaghetti was squirmy and squishy? And why it had a nasty bitter taste? Because it was WORMS!” That’s just one of the horrible tricks Mrs Twit plays on Mr Twit, and she only does it because he puts a slimy frog in her bed. And he only does that because she puts her glass eye into his beer. And she only does that because...well, you get the picture.

Mr and Mrs Twit loathe each other. They never wash and they live in a smelly old caravan next to a rotting tree. Bored of playing tricks on each other, they decide to open a circus, capturing a family of monkeys and cruelly training them to perform in the ring. The local birds try to rescue the monkeys, but only with the audience’s help will the Twits meet a sticky end and the monkeys finally be set free.

Event organiser Peter Ferguson, of pdf Productions said: “It’s great to invite The Illyria Theatre Company to the area each year as they never fail to entertain the sell out audiences at every show they perform. We are really excited about this show as it will entertain the whole family.”
