Chickenshed is hugely proud and excited to be bringing David Walliams
THE MIDNIGHT GANG to the stage for the very first time.
When the clock strikes midnight most children are fast asleep, but for
the Midnight Gang the journey is just beginning.
children find themselves in hospital for a variety of reasons, including
Tom who’s been hit on the head by a cricket ball and really doesn’t want
to go back to school. They soon discover that something far more
exciting is happening beyond the confines of the children’s ward. A
heart-warming and hilarious tale of fun, friendship and adventure
ensues, all under the cover of darkness when the horrible matron is sure
they are all fast asleep.
Writer David Walliams has
already created an amazingly rich collection of children’s fiction, and

children. In 2016 THE MIDNIGHT GANG went straight to No. 1 in the
overall book charts and remained there for seven weeks. It was the
industry’s biggest selling book for Christmas and was the Christmas No,
1 making it the first children’s No. 1 since J K Rowling in 2008.
Since making his debut into the world of children’s literature in 2008,
David Walliams has celebrated exceptional success. His global sales
total over 17 million copies and his work has been translated into over
