This story by David Walliams has been adapted for the stage by The Birmingham Stage Company. Two of their previous two shows, Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy, received Olivier Award nominations!

The company also toured Demon Dentist in 2022-23 and another version of Awful Auntie in 2017-18. This brand new production of Awful Auntie has different actors and a brand new set.

When Stella sets off to visit London with her parents, she has no idea her life is in danger! When Stella wakes up three months later, only her Aunt Alberta can tell her 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!

This is an exciting adventure story with a strong female heroine in Stella who, along with her friend Soot the ghost, must take on Aunt Alberta to prevent her wicked plan coming to fruition. The story also contains many moments of humour, as you would expect from David Walliams

Awful Auntie was published as novel for children by HarperCollins in 2014. Unlike many of David’s other books, this has not been adapted for TV as yet so most of the audience won’t have seen these characters being performed by actors before.

“Awful Auntie Live on Stage is a triumphant adaption of David Walliams’ much loved book. It has been cleverly adapted and directed and is great entertainment!”

What's Good To Do

“This knockabout country-house horror-detective fun has been adapted by the team behind the hit take on Gangsta Granny. My boys loved it!”

Sunday Times

“Awful Auntie is a thrilling mash-up of comedy, horror, and detective story. I hope the partnership with Birmingham Stage Company continues with David Walliams: his books are ready fodder for the stage and become, in BSC’s experienced hands, note-perfect productions.”
