Billionaire Boy

Billionaire Boy by David Walliams at the Garrick Theatre, London

Experience David Walliams’ hilarious children’s classic live with Billionaire Boy tickets

Following the highly successful run of Gangsta Granny at the Garrick Theatre in 2017, Birmingham Stage Company are bringing another well-loved David Walliams book to the theatre with Billionaire Boy.

At only twelve years old, Joe Spud is the richest boy in the country! He has everything a boy could possibly want, including a whopping £100,000 a week pocket money! The one thing he doesn’t have, though, is a friend. In a quest to find some chums, he leaves his posh school and starts at the local comprehensive. Things don’t go according to Joe’s plan and as whacky and hilarious adventures occur, he realises that money certainly can’t buy everything!

A moving love story set during the horrifying events of the First World War, Private Peaceful is a tale of love, loss and courage set to enthral audiences at the Garrick Theatre from 7th November 2020.

Based on the best-selling novel by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, Private Peaceful tells the story of Private Tommo Peaceful, who looks back on his Devon upbringing, his romance with childhood sweetheart, Molly and the terrible events that saw him taken from this idyllic setting and into the horrors of war.

This new production of Private Peaceful first opened as part of the Barn Theatre’s first outdoor theatre festival, BarnFest, in August 2020. It then transferred to The Barn Theatre in September, making it one of the first major indoor productions in the UK since the COVID lockdown. It will play at the Garrick Theatre from 7th to 22nd of November for a special socially distanced season.
