David Walliam's "Gangsta Granny," a successful British comedy fiction book for children, has been adapted for the stage. Debuting in the West End in summer of 2017 at the Garrick Theater, the production is being staged by Birmingham Stage Company as part of their 25th anniversary celebration. The show has already been nominated for Best Show for Children and Young People for a UK Theatre Award. The Garrick Theatre run will last until September 2017 followed by a tour of other theaters and performance spaces throughout the UK. Walliams told the press he was delighted his popular book was appearing in the West End. He said it was the most popular book he had ever written and was excited to see the Birmingham Stage Company adaptation of his work.
The Gangsta Granny stage show manages to capture the comedy and sweetness of the book at the same time. The tone is set with the colorful set designed to appear similar to the pop-outs of children's picture books. The adaptation directed by Neal Foster is lively and engaging, with recurring gags like Granny's scooter, which moves painfully slow across the stage. The stage show captures the rapid pacing of the Walliam's book, designed to keep the flighty attention span of young children. At the same time, it is soulful, sweet and endearing, touching the inner child of everyone in the audience.

His attitude changes when he discovers that his grandmother used to be an international jewel thief. Not only that, her bucket list goal was to steal the crown jewels in the Tower of London, which she had never been able to do during her illustrious career.
