Charlie and the War Against the Grannies

Date: 16 Feb 2021

All 12-year-old Charlie Duncan wanted was a simple paper round.

What he uncovers is a league of evil grannies plotting to set up a ‘Granny State’, where everyone will be forced to wear brown cardigans, go to bed early and there will be NO CHILDREN!

The stakes are high and it’s up to Charlie and his best friend Hils to go to war with the fiendish grannies and stop them taking over the world.

Can Charlie and Hils save the day? Find out these Autumn school holidays when this hilarious production full of warmth, friendship and ridiculousness lands on stage.

Alan Brough’s debut book Charlie and the War Against the Grannies was short-listed for ABIA Book of the Year for Younger Children 2017 and the Australian Book Design Awards 2017, and was long-listed for ‘Indie Book Awards 2017’.

The story comes to life here with shadow puppetry, live music and three really stinky farts!

Recommended for children aged 5 and up.
