Mind the Gap presents Clive King’s
Stig of the Dump
Retold by Mike Kenny
Coming to a venue near you.
An enchanting tale of a unique friendship: Stig wears rabbit-skins, has his own language and uses empty tin cans for a chimney. In his world the outsider is king, nothing is wasted and a dump is filled with endless delights. Barney has scuffed shoes, grazed knees and dirty fingernails, in his world anything is possible, the mundane becomes magical, summer holidays last forever and the sky is as big as his imagination.
Join Stig and Barney on their delightful adventure as puppetry and performance turn rubbish into something real, change scrap into scenery and make garbage gorgeous!
The retelling of this classic story by Olivier Award winner Mike Kenny will captivate, inspire and excite everyone aged 8+.
