the little playhouse

Family Feature | 2024-25 | Currently in Development


When a beloved local theatre company is suddenly thrown into disarray after its director falls ill, his teenage daughter and a self-centred American TV star must put their own differences aside and come together to co-direct a group of misfit children for the annual show. With the pressure mounting, the pair are forced to navigate their own personal struggles and find common ground in order to. bring the production to life.


Born out of a kindred connection between creators Olivia Maiden & Mark Haptonstall, The Little Playhouse is the film they think the world is missing. A family film that brings audiences together with the rewatch value of 90s classics like Forrest Gump & Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The screenplay has been written with production in mind, drawing on readily available resources to create a high quality film with a streamlined budget, ensuring safe and profitable investment. We are shooting in Olivia’s hometown in Gloucestershire in the Spring of 2024 with release planned for December the same year, using local talent and locations.
