“AWFUL AUNTIE is a HOOT! A fabulous adaptation of David Walliams’ story … hilarious and thrilling, even scary, all at the same time … The action is fast-paced, comedy and dramatic cliff-hangers breathlessly bowling us along … The show is full of magic” Western Daily Press

“Walliams’ humour and multi-generation appeal shines through from start to finish, with many madcap, laugh-out-loud comedic moments
With some clever puppetry, superbly orchestrated musical accompaniment, and even an on-stage car chase, it is easy to see why the show has received rave reviews Bath and Wiltshire Parent

“The BSC’s Gangsta Granny is truly brilliant, so I’m hugely excited they’ve now brought Awful Auntie to the stage. I loved this terrific show and can’t wait for you to see it!” David Walliams

When Stella sets off to visit London with her parents, Lord and Lady Saxby, she has no idea her life is in danger! Waking up three months later, only her Aunt Alberta can tell Stella what has happened. But not everything Alberta tells her turns out to be true and Stella quickly discovers she’s in for the fight of her life against her very own awful Auntie!

From the award-winning West End producers of Gangsta Granny and the UK’s best-selling author for children, comes the world premiere production of David Walliams’ amazing tale of frights, fights and friendship, featuring a very large owl, a very small ghost and a very awful Auntie!
