Mr Stink Christmas Edition 'Live On Stage'

Tickets from £8 | Ages 5yrs+ | Running Time 1 hr (with no interval)


Mr Stink is back at Chickenshed… just in time for a very special Christmas edition.

The very kind, but lonely, 12 year old Chloe invites the homeless ‘Mr Stink’ to leave behind the wooden bench where he has taken up residence and secretly move into her family’s shed for Christmas. Matters become more complicated when Chloe’s mother – with unfulfilled political ambitions – tries to take credit for Chloe’s generosity. And precisely who is Mr Stink, anyway?

This brand new staging of our original 2018 show, will be a treat for all the family. Mr Stink, and the whole cast, bring plenty of festive cheer - with some singing and dancing - guaranteed to lift our hearts this Christmas. Chickenshed's unique inclusive ethos and the heart-warming and uplifting message of acceptance and the power of kindness shines through the whole show. 

Also featuring a special guest appearance from renowned British presenter, broadcaster and journalist, Jeremy Vine(!), this wonderfully warm and funny production will live long in the memory.

But, you might want to hold your nose… that’s not over-cooked Brussel sprouts… it’s Mr Stink!

Due to social distancing measures, there will be reduced ticket numbers for performances this year - so make sure to book early!

Reviews for our 2018 production

“There’s no doubt that Chickenshed have triumphed with this show. An already heart-warming story is brought to life by a talented group of performers and creative team. It seems fitting that a theatre company that celebrates diversity and inclusiveness should create a stage adaptation of a story that does the same. Engaging, touching and fun, I thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Stink – well done, Chickenshed!” 5***** The Spy in the Stalls
