JUST tricking, annoying, stupid, crazy, shocking, disgusting, doomed – Live On Stage!

27 - 28 Sep

Definitely not for the faint farted... we mean hearted!

Written by Robin Goldsworthy
Adapted from the JUST book series, written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton

Every year Andy’s school holds a short story competition and every year Andy writes an awesome, amazing, captivating, TERRIFYING story. But every year Andy is robbed of winning, thwarted by some dumb story about kittens and sunshine.

Who cares that technically Andy’s been banned from entering the competition after last year’s… incident. There wasn’t that much vomit and the two kids taken to hospital were totally fine! Well, mostly fine.

This year Andy knows that the prize is within his grasp. All he has to do is write the most INCREDIBLE story the world has ever read! Easy!

With the help of his best friend Danny, the love of his life Lisa (but if you tell anyone he said that, he’ll feed you to a giant slug!), his somewhat trusty dog Sooty and a lifetime of crazy, shocking, doomed, stupid and just plain DISGUSTING experiences, Andy sets out on a night that will ensure a flawless victory. As long as his brussels sprouts farts don’t poison them all before morning!

JUST tricking, annoying, stupid, crazy, disgusting, shocking, doomed LIVE ON STAGE! takes on the wonderful world of the JUST books by Andy Griffiths, vividly and hilariously bringing them to life on the stage with everything from invisibility pills and Mudmen, to vomiting dogs and death defying balloon rides. JUST tricking, annoying, stupid, crazy, disgusting, shocking, doomed LIVE ON STAGE! Definitely not for the faint farted… we mean hearted!

  • The JUST series is where it all began for me and it will be JUST amazing to see these crazy/annoying/stupid stories come alive on stage! - Andy Griffiths, Author of the JUST book series
