Sam is a loser, or so everyone tells him. When his bonkers gran breaks out of prison to stop her house collapsing into the sea, Sam’s drawn into a daring adventure.

He, Gran and her pet snake hunt for long-lost treasure, with the law and Granny’s deadliest enemies – her ex-boyfriend Joe the Toe and his new girlfriend Cosy Rosy, who are after Granny’s gold – in hot pursuit.

Will they find the gold? Will they save Granny’s house, including her state-of-the-art toilet? In this hilarious comedy Sam gets the chance to prove he’s not a loser, Granny finds something awesome in the toilet and Joe discovers you should never put your hand in Granny’s handbag.

Saviour Pirotta is an award-winning children’s writer. His books include The Orchard Book of First Greek Myths, The Unicorn Prince, the Ancient Greek Mysteries series and The Golden Horsemen of Baghdad. This is his first play for the SJT.
