Mr Stink stank.
He also stunk.
And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well …
David Walliams’ award-winning book Mr Stink comes to life on stage for children 6-12 and their adults at Griffith Regional Theatre on Friday 10 March at 6pm.
It all starts when Chloe, 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 doesn’t hesitate to offer him her family’s garden shed.
Now Chloe has to make sure no one finds out her secret, but she’s about to learn that some secrets can lead to disaster.
And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye … or the nose.
Griffith Regional Theatre and Art Gallery manager Raina Savage said David Walliams is one of the UK’s funniest and best loved comedians.
“David’s children books are equally hilarious and have a huge following in Australia,” Ms Saveage said.
“But they also touch on some serious issues that children – and adults - can struggle with.
“His characters explore ways for young people to negotiate challenges in their lives, with compassion and humour.
“With its tongue firmly in cheek and its heart in the right place, this is a show that the whole family can enjoy”.
This original Australian adaptation was created by CDP Theatre, the team behind the wildly popular 13 Storey Treehouse series.
Ms Savage encouraged families to get down to the theatre for this touching, twisted, hilarious, and very smelly tale.
“Just remember to hold on to your nose!” Ms Savage added.
Mr Stink is at Griffith Regional Theatre on Friday 10 March at 6pm.
