You are invited to a dinner party with this couple.

SOUNDBITE: Mrs. Twit, saying (English):

“We’re renewing our vows, you see? And we want everyone come on down, don’t we?”

The Twits – from Roald Dahl’s classic children’s story – are an eccentric, unhappy and argumentative couple – and they are celebrating their 40th anniversary.

SOUNDBITE: Mrs. Twit, saying (English):

“Yeah, imagine being with this for 40 years. Can you imagine? Look at him. Look at the state of him. I mean look at his beard. It’s disgusting, ain’t it?”

SOUNDBITE: Mr. Twit, saying (English):

“Lots of people with beards these days.”

The stage production ‘Dinner At The Twits’ invites audiences to a 90 minute meal and show – and we’re told the food is to die for.

SOUNDBITE: Sam Bompas, Food & Drink curator for Dinner At The Twits, saying (English):

“You rummage in the compost heap and you find eggs actually cooked in compost. Of course, some is actually more challenging than this. So, we’ve got worms in all of the salt and pepper dispensers. You can choose to put this in your dish. And the piece de resistance the mighty entrance of the bird pie itself.”

SOUNDBITE: James Seager, producer of Dinner At The Twits, saying (English):

“It’s this disgustingness, but also this reward as well. So I want them to come away with a real sense of fun, but also this sense of grottiness and horribleness of Mr. and Mrs. Twit because that’s what they’re famous for. They’re iconic.”

If you have a taste for The Twits, the show runs until the end of October at The Vaults in London.
