Idiot Child is a theatre company based in Bristol who make playful and peculiar work about how hard it is to be alive sometimes. They create unusual stories based on autobiography and always place the audience at the centre of their work.
The company formed in 2009 and we have made 5 shows in this time: Nostalgia, Choking Hazard, Isle of Shame, I could’ve been better, and You’re not doing it right. The company are currently creating a new piece of work about fear and anxiety called What if the plane falls out of the sky? This will open in Bristol in May, tour nationally and then go to the Edinburgh Fringe.
Idiot Child tells stories about ordinary people and ordinary lives in extraordinary manners. We find the beauty and weirdness in the everyday and try to make work that asks how you are feeling.
