Mr Stink

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING its successful six week run at Chickenshed in Summer 2018, Sam Bradshaw and Lou Stein (Chickenshed’s Artistic Director) have decided to tour Mr Stink, a musical adaptation of David Walliams’ acclaimed best-selling book.

In it, the very kind, but lonely, 12year old Chloe invites the homeless Mr Stink and his dog, Duchess, 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?

Mr Stink is the second original, touching, and hilarious novel for children from David Walliams who is a huge supporter of Chickenshed’s work. He is delighted that this important and engaging show will reach new audiences this summer.

There will be three pre tour performances at Chickenshed – on Friday, July 19 at 7pm and on Saturday, July 20 at 3pm and 7pm.

Tour venues and dates:

Cheltenham Everyman – July 22 to July 27.
