      • Muddy reviews: The Twits

        I’m just back from seeing The Twits at the Rose Theatre in Kingston and I’ve got two things to tell you about it.

        Numero uno: The Twits really are an awful pair – repulsive, disgusting and pretty ghastly. They’re not nice to each other, and they’re even worse to those around them – especially the monkey Muggle Wumps.

        Numero deux: They provide brilliant comedic material for kids – and their parents. From the beer guzzling at breakfast and the brown stains on Mr Twit’s Y-fronts to Mrs Twit’s earthworm pasta and delightful leopard-print leggings, there’s a lot to make you groan about these two.
