The bestselling children’s author David Walliams and the award-winning Birmingham Stage Company have teamed up for a brand-new production of Demon Dentist. This is their latest collaboration after Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy, both of which received Olivier award nominations.
Demon Dentist begins with strange things happening in Alfie’s town! Children are leaving their teeth for the tooth fairy and waking up to find horrible things under their pillow! Alfie and his friend Gabz are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery - but no-one could have dreamed what they’ll discover when they come face to face with the demon dentist herself!
David Walliams said: “The Birmingham Stage Company has created three amazing adaptations of my books, so I can’t wait to see their new production of Demon Dentist! It’s going to be jaw-dropping!”
