Watersmeet, Rickmansworth presents David Walliams Mr Stink
31st March 2019
This summer Sam Bradshaw Productions has teamed up with Chickenshed to present a brand new musical adaptation of David Walliams’ acclaimed best-selling book, ‘Mr Stink’. It will show at Watersmeet, Rickmansworth from Sunday 25 August – Tuesday 27 August 2019.
The very kind, but lonely, 12-year-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?
The decision to tour this imaginative and heart-warming show follows Chickenshed’s successful six week run at their resident venue last summer. Sam Bradshaw and Lou Stein (Chickenshed’s Artistic Director) realised the importance of touring this diverse company’s high calibre of work and the impact David Walliams’ writing can have on young audiences across the UK.
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.
David Walliams said: “I love Chickenshed. They are, without doubt, one of the best theatre companies in the world. I am so proud to be associated with them, and the inspirational work they do”
We are also delighted to announce that renowned British presenter, broadcaster and journalist Jeremy Vine, will be making his professional acting debut with a cameo performance.
Join Chickenshed this summer for a brilliantly staged musical version of a warm-hearted and extremely funny story. We guarantee that you will laugh, you will cry and you might well also want to hold your nose!
