"Their production of my book The Midnight Gang is beautiful, and made me laugh and cry in equal measure. Do try and see it and all the work of the Chickenshed if you can.’ David Walliams
Following 2017’s rip-roaringly successful adaptation of The Midnight Gang, Chickenshed proudly presents a brand new adaptation of David Walliams’ acclaimed book, Mr Stink.
The very kind, but lonely, 12 year old Chloe invites the homeless ‘Mr Stink’ and his dog to leave behind the wooden bench where they have taken up residence and secretly move into her family’s shed. Matters become more complicated when Chloe’s mother – who has unfulfilled political ambitions – tries to take credit for Chloe’s generosity. And precisely who is Mr Stink, anyway?
Join us for a brilliantly staged version of this warm-hearted and funny story.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You might want to hold your nose.
