Chiffchaff Children’s Theatre is a company of professional adult actors making theatre for children based in East London.

In summer 2018 we performed ‘On the Way Home’ by Jill Murphy in every library in the London Borough of Newham as part of Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018. This show was supported Newham Council.

In April 2016 we first performed our adaptation of ‘Banana!’ by Ed Vere and ‘Whatever Next!’ by Jill Murphy at Leytonstone Library hall. This show was supported by a Waltham Forest Arts Development Grant.

We began in 2012 when we staged an adaptation of Jill Murphy’s ‘Peace at Last‘ in Leytonstone Library, with funding from Arts Council England. We were invited by Waltham Forest Council to perform the play again as part of the official re-opening of Leytonstone Library followed a major refurbishment on Sunday 13 September 2015. The play was also performed on Tuesday 29 December 2015.
