Giddy Aunt

Giddy Aunt is a children's theatre company led by performer and theatre maker Claire Willoughby, and collaborating with a rich mix of exciting artists.



We are particularly driven to make innovative, risk-taking theatre that explores everyday issues and difficult transitional periods affecting children and young people today.

We aim to address current issues and to explore them in a way that is accessible, entertaining and non-confrontational in the most creative ways possible. Our emphasis is on stories and characters – for an adventure to be the heart of everything we do – with the intention of creating a catalyst for discussion and debate between young people and their peers/teachers/parents. We are young, contemporary, risk- taking theatre makers, with one eye on pop culture and the other on the larger social political landscape.
