Two terrible twins with a talent for turmoil rule their school with terror and tyranny – until the arrival of a new head teacher with green scaly skin, sharp gnarly fangs, and a long spiky tail…

Can the twins save the school from the child-eating Troll? Can they get Brussels sprouts in peanut butter taken off the menu? And most importantly, can naughtiness prevail?

An outrageously entertaining colourfully comic show from the writer of award-winning West End hit Matilda the Musical, Dennis Kelly, toured nationally including two residencies at the Edinburgh Festival (2014 & 2015).

This play was originally created as part of Wild Lunch: Funsize (2005).

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
