Stick Man Spends Christmas at Leicester Square Theatre

WhatsOnStage logo
Stick Man, adapted from the children's book by Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson, will transfer to the Leicester Square Theatre for an eight-week festive season from 22 November 2011 to 8 January 2012.

The production, which recently ran at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, has been touring the UK since 2009 and will travel to Singapore and Hong Kong following its run in London.

Produced by Scamp Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre, the production stars  Brian Hargreaves (Musician), Mark Kane (Stick Man) Peta Dennis (Stick Lady Love) and Pieter Lawman.

One day whilst out for a jog, Stick Man is pounced on by a playful dog. Mistaken for an ordinary stick, he is swept far away, being used for all sorts of things: from a flag mast to a cricket bat, a snowman’s arm to firewood. As his adventure unfolds, Stick Man – lost and alone – wonders if he will ever get back to the family tree.

The creative team - Sally Cookson (director), Katie Sykes (designer) and Benji Bower (music) - recently collaborated on Treasure Island at the Bristol Old Vic.
