Theatre Fideri Fidera is a Brighton-based, Anglo-Swiss touring company dedicated to creating original new work for children and their families. Our first two plays Pitschi, the Kitten with Dreams (2016) and Oskar’s Amazing Adventure (2017) have had over 250 performances in the UK and Ireland in the past three years including venues such as The Lowry, Curve, MAC, ARC, the Lyric Hammersmith and many rural touring schemes. Our latest play Ugg ’n’ Ogg and the World’s First Dogg premiered in Edinburgh in 2019 and is now on its first national tour.
For us theatre for young people needs to be accessible, engaging, entertaining and above all offer a shared experience for both children and their families and when we create a new play, we make sure that it will work just as well in a village hall as in a theatre.

“It was absolutely wonderful, a beautiful, moving, creative and engaging story for under 7s. The props, illustrations, music and singing, use of water, bells and accents make the whole experience sensory which is crucial for young audiences. This is exactly what first theatre experiences should be like. Magical.”
Susy Payne, The Arc about Pitchi, the Kitten with Dreams
“Combining brilliant storytelling, beautiful handmade stuffed animals and plenty of songs and actions for us all to join in with, this is a charming and thoughtful piece of theatre for younger children. Furry friends, foxes and fun for all the family, this delightful show is a real treat for everyone…”
Edinburghfestivalforkids about Oskar’s Amazing Adventure
★★★★★ “Outstanding. Every aspect of the production is marvellous. From the acting, which is pitched perfectly to the wide-eyed wee ones; to the puppets and puppetry, which are in turn beautifully constructed and wondrously brought to life; via the story itself which is full of heart and smiles.”
