Jenny Gayner – Gangsta Granny
Jenny is starring as Ben’s Mum in David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny. Following a national tour in the Spring and Summer of 2017 and a West End transfer to the Garrick, this award-winning Birmingham Stage Company production is going back on tour starting on the 22nd of March at Hertford Theatre and ending at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham on the 15th of July.
Gangsta Granny is also having a short 2-week run in the West End at the Garrick Theatre starting on the 14th of August until the 26th.
Every Friday young plumbing enthusiast Ben (Tom Cawte) is sent to stay with his boring Granny (Louise Bailey) by his Strictly Come Dancing-obsessed parents (Jenny Gayner and Jason Furnival), a situation he finds dull and dreary, exacerbated by the fact that it seems the only food his Granny ever serves him is variations on cabbage. However, this all changes when Ben discovers his Grandma’s dark secret, that she is a notorious jewellery thief. With this new perspective on his Grandma, the two of them hatch a plan for the ultimate heist: the stealing of the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London.
