Watch the comical masterpiece, Awful Auntie, presented by a star-studded cast of performers at the Bloomsbury Theatre this December. The award-winning and top-selling children’s book of 2014 written by the inimitable David William has been perfectly adapted to the stage!

Why Watch David Walliams’ Awful Auntie

Known for hilarious titles such as Gangsta Granny and Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain, David Williams’ popularity stretches far beyond his home country of Britain. The iconic levity that he brings to the panel of Britain’s Got Talent and his role as a comedian in Little Britain have made him one of the most loved public figures in the UK and beyond. His previous book, Gangsta Granny, was also a smash-hit earlier this year at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

The show stars Richard James from The Mystery of Sherlock Holmes and Georgina Leonidas who played Katie Bell in the Harry Potter films. Neal Foster, who has successfully adapted and directed some of Williams’ plays in the past, returns to direct this exceptional children’s tale alongside lighting expert Jason Taylor and music director Jak Poore.

The Story

Stella, the sole heiress to the opulent Saxby Hall, is a young British girl who is visiting London with her parents, Lord and Lady Saxby. Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worse, and Stella wakes up three months later with no memory of the events that separated her from her parents. Aunt Alberta is the only one who seems to know what happened to Stella, but Stella is convinced that her aunt is up to no good. She is soon pitted against the awful Aunt Alberta and Wagner, a Great Bavarian Mountain Owl. Will Stella Saxby manage to find out what really happened or will she lose everything to the conniving Aunt Alberta? Find out in this exceptionally funny show that is sure to keep you laughing long after the final scene!

Critics’ Reviews

"Ten out of ten for a show that’s true to plot and spirit of the book – although this play is so much funnier."
Nottingham Post

"Just like Gangsta Granny before it, Awful Auntie transfers so beautifully to the stage that it could have been written especially for the theatre. It has everything a great piece of theatre needs and, possibly most important of all, it captures the audience’s attention from the very beginning to the very end. It's awfully good!"
