Mr Stink

A play by Maryam Master directed by Jonathan Biggins

Presented by CDP Kids

A touching, twisted and hilarious, and very smelly tale directed by Newcastle favourite, Jonathan Biggins.

It all starts when Chloe, just about the loneliest girl in the world, makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Sure he smells a bit, but he’s the only person who’s ever been nice to her. So, when Mr Stink needs a place to stay, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed.

Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret, but she’s about to learn that some secrets have a way of leading to disaster. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose…

From the team behind The 13- 26- and 52-Storey Treehouses live on stage.
