It's with a rather heavy heart that I admit I'm old enough to remember the Super Gran TV series but had only been introduced to Gangsta Granny through my eldest daughter as it is one of her favourite books.
So it was then that we went to see David Walliams' comic creation take centre stage as part of the Birmingham Stage Company's show which has landed at the Norwich Theatre Royal before a West End run later this summer.
It is a fun-filled, laugh along, sometimes sad but ultimately heart-warming great, great, great, grandmother of a show which provides a perfect escape from the current trials and tribulations of life.
Gilly Tompkins as Gangsta Granny seems to revel in the role to which she brings a boundless energy and devilish glint.
Ashley Cousins as her grandson Ben also brings a charming enthusiasm to the show and is an old head on young shoulders.

Show-goers young and old revelled in this Gangsta Granny paradise.
It certainly would be a crime to miss it.
