Gangsta Granny, by the ubiquitous David Walliams and adapted by Heartbreak for the outdoor stage, tells the story of 11-year-old-Ben who spends every Friday night with his scrabble-playing, cabbage eating Granny while his parents go off dancing. Ben has no interest in dancing, scrabble, or cabbage – he just wants to be a plumber! In his quest for something to eat that isn’t based on leafy greens, Ben discovers that his Granny is actually an international jewel thief! Ben joins in on her escapades and the two of them have great fun pulling off Granny’s biggest heist yet. British Sign Language Interpreted performances occurring at cities across the UK.

Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare like you’ve never seen it before. Set in the here and now, with the star-crossed lovers as members of celebrity feuding families, this ultra-glam adaptation begins at a red carpet launch event for Lady Capulet’s new perfume. Mixing in modern language, music, and technology, we explore how this famous couple would fare in today’s world of social media, selfies, and celebrity.
