Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Best-Selling Children’s Paperback of 2016 comes to the stage in Darlington

The Birmingham Stage Company bring David Walliams’ Awful Auntie to Darlington Hippodrome from Wednesday 28 February to Sunday 4 March.

Citizens of Darlington are advised to watch out for a very large owl as well as the most awful Auntie in history. They will be up against a brave little girl and her ghostly friend in the world premiere production of David Walliams’ Awful Auntie at Darlington Hippodrome later this month.

This funny and exciting new show is from Birmingham Stage Company, the award-winning producers who brought David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny to the Hippodrome. David Walliams says: “The Birmingham Stage Company’s Gangsta Granny is truly brilliant, so I’m hugely excited that they’re now bringing Awful Auntie to the stage. It promises to be a thrilling show and a total hoot – Wagner the owl and I can’t wait to see it!”

Awful Auntie tells the story of Stella, who when she sets off to visit London with her parents had no idea her life was in danger. Waking up from a coma three months later, only her Aunt Alberta can tell Stella what has happened. But not everything Aunt 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!

Every family contains a fan of David Walliams’ books, so they won’t want to miss Awful Auntie when she comes to Darlington Hippodrome – it’s awfully thrilling fun for everyone over 5!
