So you think being bad is wrong? Think again...

This page is for the 2015 production.

Sure, I eat people’s grandmothers once in a while, but that doesn’t make me a bad person… it makes me a good villain.

The Big Bad Wolf's in trouble - he's been ripped out of his story and thrown in jail for being too good at being bad. But being the villain's the best part, everyone knows that...

This Christmas, someone's decided to change the fairytale rulebook and no-one seems to know why. How are you supposed to tell who the good guys are when there are no baddies around? Step into the lives of everyone's favourite villainous characters and find out.

This sublimely entertaining and larger-than-life new family show is sure to be the baddest musical in town!

★★★★★ 'The Unicorn has a big hit on its hands' Evening Standard 
★★★★ 'An unexpected riot' The Guardian
