The most horrible people to have ever lived on the stage of the earth are coming to the Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre next Tuesday.

Currently on their national tour of Roald Dahl’s The Twits, the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre are excited to be bringing one of their most highly anticipated shows to audiences in Harvey.

First published in 1980, The Twits is a comedy of rebellion and justice in which a monkey races to two of the most terrible and disgusting people ever to have lived.

Playfulness and tricks are more successful than following the rules in this classic Roald Dahl story, making it fantastically well suited to the grotesque world of puppet theatre.

With one of the two shows in Harvey now sold out, Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre manager David Marshall said viewers would be in for quite the performance.

“It’s very exciting to be a part of this national tour of The Twits by such a well-known performance company as Spare Parts Puppet Theatre,” Mr Marshall said. “Roald Dahl has been a much loved author for children and adults and this show is something the whole family can enjoy and experience together.”

Limited tickets are still available for the 6.15pm performance, and can be purchased at the Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre.
