Wee Stories is a multi award-winning theatre company, creating a high quality, unique brand of story-telling theatre for all generations.  Our passion and enthusiasm is for stories - old and new. We believe stories root people - particularly children - in their culture, history and tradition. A love of literature, high comedy, visual games, imaginative stagecraft and audience involvement lie at the heart of all our productions.  

 

We maintain a growing repertoire of productions and tour extensively both in terms of geography and scale of venues, from schools and village halls to the country’s most renowned theatres.

 

We aim to reach the widest audience not only in terms of geography and scale, but also in terms of age. We make theatre that we describe as child-friendly; young people are always at the centre of our work, however we passionately believe that a shared theatrical experience is the best theatrical experience.

 

Wee Stories are:

Iain Johnstone - Artistic Director 

Andy Cannon - Associate Artist

David Trouton - Associate Artist
