Step into the imagination of comedian and writer David Walliams as the Demon Dentist comes to town.

The story follows 12-year-old Alfie and 11-year-old Gabz, who notice that strange things have started to happen in their town after the new dentist, Miss Root, moves in.

Soon after, children are leaving their teeth for the tooth fairy and waking up to find unusual things under their pillows, and they notice that the dentist is giving them sweets and toothpaste that seem to do more harm than good.

Alfie and Gabz are determined to get to the bottom of things and, now, audiences are invited to join them on their journey.

This hilarious production of Demon Dentist comes from the same team of West End producers behind stage adaptations of Gangsta Granny and Billionaire. Both shows, based on previous books by the actor, were nominated for an Olivier Award.

“The Birmingham Stage Company has created amazing adaptations of my books, so I can’t wait to see their new production of Demon Dentist,” says the 51-year-old writer. “It’s going to be hilarious, jaw-dropping fun!”
