Mr Stink

Tickets:  from £10


"Their production of my book The Midnight Gang last summer was so beautiful, and made me laugh and cry in equal measure. If you have never seen the work of Chickenshed before, then you are in for a real treat!’  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.

About David Walliams

David Walliams has revolutionised reading for children and has become one of the most influential writers today. 2018 celebrates the tenth anniversary of his children’s fiction, which began with The Boy in the Dress (2008), illustrated by the iconic Sir Quentin Blake. Since then, his global book sales have exceeded twenty-three million copies in fifty-three languages.

In 2017, David became the first children’s writer to spend 100 weeks (non-consecutive) at number one in the children’s charts, he topped the Sunday Times bestseller charts four times, and secured the coveted Christmas number one - a spot David has secured for the last three years running!

With a canon of ten chart-busting novels, two short-story collections and five hilarious picture books, David Walliams has cemented his place as one of the most important children’s authors of our time. The Guardian recently hailed him “as important to the market as any Booker prize-winner and heir to the Rowling crown”.
