“Meet Ben, an 11-year old want-to-be plumber fed up with spending his Friday nights at Granny’s. All she wants to do is play scrabble and eat cabbage – not exactly his idea of fun!

Hungry and bored Ben goes searching for something more edible in the kitchen and stumbles upon an old biscuit tin. The tin holds more that just digestives, however, it contains Granny’s biggest secret…

Ben’s Granny is an international jewel thief – and she needs his help to pull off her biggest heist yet, stealing the crown jewels!

Heartbreak Productions invites you to share in this exciting escapade, a David Walliams best seller adapted for the outdoor stage. Join us, Ben, and his Gangsta Granny on their grandest adventure full of forbidden fun. It could be very hungry work so come prepared with picnics and appropriate outdoor gear.”
