I never thought I would consider an experience eating dinner with Roald Dahl’s Twits. All that food in Mr Twit’s beard, the bird pie, glass eyes… it sounds a truly gruesome experience and not for the faint hearted or those with a delicate stomach.
However that is precisely what those clever chaps at Les Enfants Terribles and ebp have conjured. They have teamed up with culinary extraordinaires Bompas and Parr, to present an interactive theatrical dining experience like no other at The Vaults in Waterloo.
Based on the much-loved Roald Dahl tale, guests are invited to sample the delights at the worst dinner party in the world. The evening will include a banquet of deliciously disgusting dishes, to be enjoyed with homemade cocktails, Mr Twit’s special brew and Mrs Twit’s potent punch. Fish the glass eye from your cocktail, take a slice of bird pie, and enjoy all manner of fabulously foul food while being entertained by your horrid hosts.
Harry Parr, of Bompas & Parr, said: “We have always been fascinated by food taboos, and the gleefully grotesque universe of the Twits seems to us the perfect place to probe the limits of gastronomic experimentation. We want guests at Dinner at the Twits to be titillated, intrigued and surprised, and we promise that squeamishness will give way to scrumptiousness as you open your minds and your mouths…”
Dinner at the Twits is going to be a gloriously gruesome theatrical dining experience that will blow your mind and tickle your tastebuds.
