Bestselling children’s author David Walliams and the award-winning Birmingham Stage Company have teamed up for a brand-new production of the family adventure 'Awful Auntie'.

This is their latest collaboration in a series of shows which includes the Oliver Award-nominated Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy.

It comes to Venue Cymru in Llandudno between May 16 - 19.

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!

David Walliams said: “The BSC’s live shows of my books are always brilliant. I can’t wait for the fun to begin again – it’s going to be a hoot!”
