The very kind, but lonely 12 year old Chloe, invites ‘Mr Stink’ and his slightly wiffy dog to leave behind the wooden bench they call home and secretly move into her family’s shed. Matters become more complicated when Chloe’s mother, a woman with unfulfilled political ambitions, tries to take credit for Chloe’s generosity. But exactly who is Mr Stink anyway? Join us for a brilliantly staged version of David Walliams’ warm-hearted and funny story from the award-winning Chickenshed Theatre Company in association with Sam Bradshaw Productions, the show played to full houses last summer and comes to Southport Theatre for just 4 performances as part of a tour this summer. Packed with a host of original musical numbers, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry but you might want to hold your nose! ‘It’s a really playful show’ DAVID WALLIAMS ‘There’s no doubt that Chickenshed have triumphed with this show. Engaging, touching and fun’ The Spy in the Stalls ‘Touching and joyous storytelling’ Pocket size Theatre ‘Fluent, lively production, spectacular set’ British Theatre Guide Chickenshed is an inclusive theatre company that first began in 1974. Chickenshed bring people together, regardless of background, ability or circumstance to create inspiring, diverse and transformative theatre that changes lives.


‘Though poignant, the show, with its cast from the Chickenshed Theatre group based in North London, will have you giggling in your seats and tapping your toes along to playful songs about sausages and smells.’


‘Freyja really loves the book, but liked the additional songs, and it was nice to have added value to seeing the show, whilst staying true to the story.’


‘Emily, who is 6 enjoyed it, despite not having read the book yet. She enjoyed the comedic aspects – Mr Stink having a bath in the garden pond, and the running joke about Mrs Crumb pronouncing her name as “Croooooom” to make herself sound more posh! And all of the children watching laughed at Mr Stink’s HUGE burp in the face of bully, Rosamund.’ – Karen, Stopping at Two blogger
