In David Walliams's best-selling tale, rich kid Joe Spud sets out to find himself a friend.
In this lively story from best-selling author David Walliams, rich boy Joe Spud switches his private school for the local comprehensive in his friend-finding quest. Unexpected challenges and new experiences arrive along the way. A successful children's book, a hit BBC TV programme and now a stage show, Billionaire Boy premieres at the Garrick Theatre. From the award-winning producers of Gangsta Granny and Awful Auntie.
A storybook written with a younger generation in mind isn’t going to enthrall [adults]. But its continual playing up to pejorative, dated stereotypes cheapens the laughter. It needs more interaction, smiles, and lessons that have 2021 in mind.
