Sue Pyecroft, Co-Founder & Associate Director: Families and Community
Sue Pyecroft co-founded Bamboozle Theatre Company with Christopher Davies in 1994. She has been the lead theatre designer for Bamboozle’s touring shows for many years, mentoring theatre design undergrads, and also developing the use of puppetry to connect with young audiences in performances.
Sue has been closely involved in the development of Bamboozle’s programme of work with students on the Autism spectrum. In 2021, as a response to the Covid pandemic, Sue found a wildlife plot on an inner-city allotment site which has since become the Bamboozle Backyard. Through working with Bamboozle artists and the families the Wildings sessions were developed. The Wildings are play based, child-led interactive experiences within a natural environment, designed for autistic children and young people and their families which run in school holidays at The Backyard.
