Presenting theatre with serious messages in a playful way
Our awesome shows use the primary curriculum (and some really big pants) to inspire, educate, and entertain children aged 3-11 in your school, arts centre or community venue

We’ve been jabbed, we’re ever so alert, and we made a joyful and emotional return to performing LIVE at the Barnes Children’s Literature Festival in June! And now we can’t wait for our next live appearances – we are so excited to be part of the Summer Reading Challenge again, and will be performing CLARE & CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY in two west London libraries next month! The theme this year is Wild World Heroes and our show encourages children to not only share their belongings and enjoy a great story, but also to explore the natural world so close to home and look after wildlife, making it an ideal match. As well as choosing your next library book to borrow, you can buy signed copies of our accompanying picture book, illustrated by Steve Smallman, after the show for only £5. And the shows themselves are FREE to watch! Join us on Tuesday 10 August at 10.30am in Shepherd’s Bush library and at 2pm in Askew Road library!
And speaking of the Summer Reading Challenge – we are delighted to have teamed up with Coram Beanstalk and the Reading Agency for some very special challenges over the summer holidays… including one from us! Read all about it here and let us know how you get on!
This autumn, we’ll be back at the Chiswick Book Festival in London for the fifth time! Join us on Saturday 11 September at 10am – we’ll be performing CLARE & CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY and signing copies of the accompanying picture book afterwards. See you there!
Then we’re performing CLARE & CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY at The Cockpit Theatre in London on Saturday 25 September at 2pm – our fourth appearance at this fab venue. Stay tuned for more announcements of live shows to follow!
Looking for awesome affordable educational online entertainment? Nothing beats the experience of live theatre but (despite technology not being our strong suit) we adapted to the challenges of these times and now have online shows (aka ‘sheer joy’) to share with schools on their smartboards and with home learners. We are so excited to be bringing our beloved shows to the really big screen (although if you watch them on your phone, it will be a really small screen), so pop open the popcorn and join us online for some amazing adventures!
And check out our YouTube channel – as well as all the trailers for our online shows, we’ve recorded some readings of our stories and poems and bits and bobs. Watch a taste of our theatre shows below, and we can’t wait to see you again soon. Stay safe, keep smiling, and keep sharing stories. Love from Joe and Willow and our really big pants xx
- Thrilling theatre! Stupendous stories! Exciting education!
