About us

Licketyspit is a pioneering Scottish early years theatre company which has rooted its work in transformational drama-led children’s rights-based practice for twenty years. Our work springs from the connection between actors and children as ‘play experts’. Learning to consult children through play has led to a series of highly successful projects on a trajectory of discovery, which has coalesced as – Storyplay – a powerful and flexible children’s rights-based approach & methodology based on shared intergenerational imaginary play.

Storyplay is being used in education, community and arts and cultural contexts; to support refugees and asylum seekers; and as a child consultation methodology through ‘Have Your Say Through Play’. Licketyspit’s Children & Families Network (CFN) is at the heart of our practice. The CFN is an 850-strong community of families who share Licketyspit’s children’s rights ethos and want continuing connectivity and opportunities to take part in Storyplay. Licketyspit’s work is open to all, but the company prioritises its work in areas of high socio-economic challenge.
