The stage adaptation of Gangsta Granny is nothing short of genius - and that is coming from someone probably twice the age of its demographic.

It is a phrase coined all too often but it really is fun for all the family.

Whether you have read the book or seen the BBC adaptation or neither, Neal Foster's take on this unlikely tale works perfectly.

Gangsta Granny is incredibly well put together and would not look out of place on a West End stage.

It follows the story of Ben (Ashley Cousins) who spends every Friday night with his 'boring' cabbage-loving granny.

However, granny doesn't seem so boring when he discovers she has an alter-ego - the Black Cat - who spends her evenings as an international jewel thief.

Ben's parents are exagerrated and grotesque, in much the same way that Roald Dahl created Matilda's mother and father.

This stage adaptation is professional and genuinely would appeal to the entire family, young and old.

Catch it at Richmond Theatre before it closes on Saturday.
