Awful Auntie - live on stage! at Thorington Theatre


A fantastic afternoon of family entertainment.

Join us on 26th July 2022 for Awful Auntie - live on stage! at Thorington Theatre. Bring a picnic to the woods to enjoy during this heart-warming family play for all.

The new playground at the Saxby Hall Orphanage is finally complete, and Heartbreak Productions invite you to join the celebration! The orphanage was founded by Stella Saxby, hero of David Walliam’s much-loved story, Awful Auntie.

Adapted for the outdoor stage by Heartbreak Productions, this truly thrilling tale of young Stella’s bravery and derring-do involves owls, ghosts, escapes, motorcycle rides, the menacing Aunt Alberta and a vicious Bavarian owl called Wagner..! Join us in the woods this summer, as Stella, with the help of her friend Soot - the ghost of a chimney sweep - fights off awful Aunt Alberta, saves the family home, and gifts the beautiful Saxby Hall to be used as an orphanage. A gripping and heart-warming tale for all the family.

Bring a picnic, a cushion, and some weather appropriate gear for a fantastic family afternoon!
