A musical comedy based on the hilarious children’s novel written by David Walliams and illustrated by Quentin Blake

Mr Stink stank.

He also stunk.

And if it is correct English to say he stinked,

then he stinked as well.

KW & NB Ltd and Curve, Leicester with Hackney Empire and Nottingham Playhouse present a musical adaptation of David Walliams’ award-winning novel for children, Mr Stink. Opening at the Curve in Leicester with previews from 26th May, Press Performance Tues 31 May, Mr Stink will embark on a major national tour between May and December 2011 with stinky stops at the Hackney Empire for one week only from Wed 22 June to Sun 26 June and the Nottingham Playhouse for two weeks from 16 August.

David Walliams, star of Little Britain and Come Fly with Me has written the smelliest book of all time, which now breaks new ground in the first ever interactive scratch ‘n’ sniff family show, bringing Mr Stink pongingly to life.

Adapted and Directed by Matthew White (Director of the recent West End productions of Sweet Charity and Little Shop of Horrors and the forthcoming production of Top Hat) with music composed by Matt Brind (Musical Director for Legally Blonde and Conductor and Orchestrator for John Barrowman’s latest album). It is designed by Charlie Cridlan with Puppets by Toby Olie. In the cast are Peter Edbrook (Mr Stink), Lotte Gilmore (Chloe), Julia Nagle (Mrs Crumb) Mark Peachey (Mr Crumb), Irvine Iqbal (Raj).

The puppets are The Duchess Mr Stink’s faithful dog, Annabelle Chloe’s perfect sister, Elizabeth the Crumb family cat. David Walliams, who’s not in the show, really wants you to come and see it!

Chloe doesn’t like school very much. She isn’t as cool as the other kids, no iPhone, no DS and no friends. Then she meets Mr Stink – the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit but he’s the only person who’s ever been nice to her, including her mother who wants to be the local MP and is trying to rid the streets of its homeless. About to lose her only friend, Chloe finds Mr Stink a secret hiding place…but is there more to him than meets the nose?
