We believe theatre should be exciting.

Run by Oliver Lansley and James Seager, Les Enfants Terribles is dedicated to creating original and innovative theatre to entertain and inspire a wide breadth of audiences.

Known for our striking visual aesthetic and innovative use of props, puppetry and live music we are constantly pushing ourselves to explore new ways of telling stories and immersing ourselves and our audiences in the weird and wonderful worlds we create in our shows.

Who we are

Founded in 2002, the company has received consistent critical acclaim, won top industry awards, and established a large and loyal following for our unique work. We were honoured to be nominated for an Olivier Award in 2015, make the Stage Power 100 List in 2017 and also be nominated for The Stage Innovation Award in 2016. 

Over the course of our 20 year history, the company has continued to go from strength to strength, producing award-winning shows including  ‘The Trench’ and ‘The Terrible Infants’, as well as groundbreaking immersive productions such as ‘United Queendom‘, ‘Inside Pussy Riot ‘ and the smash hit ‘Alice’s Adventures Underground‘, which transferred to China in 2018 for a two-year run.

We have performed to thousands of people all over the world including Poland, Czech Republic, Dubai, Norway, Singapore, Australia, China and America as well as building a large and loyal audience in the UK. 

We’re proud to have worked with so many brilliant creatives over the years and look forward to the future creating new stories, ideas and memories!
