Show Details

Following 2017’s rip-roaringly successful adaptation of The Midnight Gang, Chickenshed proudly presents a brand new adaptation of David Walliams’ acclaimed book, Mr Stink.

The very kind, but lonely, 12 year old Chloe invites the homeless ‘Mr Stink’ and his dog to leave behind the wooden bench where they have taken up residence and secretly move into her family’s shed. Matters become more complicated when Chloe’s mother – who has unfulfilled political ambitions – tries to take credit for Chloe’s generosity. And precisely who is Mr Stink, anyway?

Join us for a brilliantly staged version of this warm-hearted and funny story.

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You might want to hold your nose.

Show Details

Join Chickenshed for a magical and brilliantly uplifting retelling of the unforgettable story of Ebenezer Scrooge, that “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner”. Follow his spooky encounters over the course of one incredible night, and his journey ultimately to become the friendly, charitable man who “knew how to keep Christmas well”.

Charles Dickens’ classic story has arguably come to define Christmas in the 175 years since its publication, and there have been numerous memorable versions, both on stage and screen. Chickenshed has updated, renewed and refreshed this amazing and heart-warming tale for 2018 in an entirely brand new musical version, set in 1930s Britain.

With a cast of over 200 hundred people on stage for each performance, original music, stunning sets and incredible design, we guarantee an absolutely unforgettable festive theatre experience for young and old!
Jekyll & Hyde
FROM:25-09-2018
TO:20-10-2018

Show Details

Chickenshed is proud to present a fearless and innovative new production of this utterly iconic story, boldly told with music, movement and a youthful vigour that honours the breathless and remorseless pace of the original novella.

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson was first published in 1886, and depicts the constant struggle between the baser instincts and finer aspirations of mankind, offering a terrifying glimpse of what lurks beneath the surface when the persuasive but superficial trappings of civilisation are stripped away.

Brilliantly exploring Stevenson’s themes of etiquette, respectability and hypocrisy, this production will explore the dark recesses of the psyche, and reflect the tale’s profound and subtle truths about what it means to be human – and how fragile the veneers of society may be.

Chickenshed is an inclusive theatre company founded in 1974. Their vision is a society that celebrates diversity and enables every individual to flourish. They aim to make beautiful and stimulating theatre by bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds to create outstanding work that entertains, inspires, challenges and informs both audiences and participants alike. They are based in their own purpose-built theatre in Southgate, North London.

Chickenshed regularly creates in-house productions on the main stage, the Rayne Theatre. It develops new and smaller scale work for adults and families in our intimate Studio Theatre, where it also present exciting interactive shows for very young children. In addition it offers a busy programme of live music and comedy events in the café bar.

Chickenshed is constantly re-examining and evaluating its work, pushing the boundaries forward, but the central belief in the importance of social inclusion remains at the core. In a world torn apart by people refusing to live or even talk together, it is their passionate believe that it is as one united world we should face the future. And they have learned that an inclusive approach enhances the creative process, and adds a layer of honesty and truth to the work produced.

Since it started over 40 years ago, Chickenshed has grown from a small group of enthusiastic young performers rehearsing in a recently vacated chicken shed, to a vibrant theatre company which is celebrated both nationally and internationally. Through the membership and education work, a programme of outreach activities and the branch in Kensington and Chelsea, it works with over 1,000 children, young people and adults every week.
