Stig of the Dump
  • West End

Aimed at children over four, this is a fast-paced interactive show full of exciting storytelling, fun songs, innovative movement and puppetry and many chances to join in.

Adapted by Olivier Award winning playwright Mike Kenny and directed by Olivier Award nominated Luke Sheppard (Matilda RSC, In The Heights), London Contemporary Theatre brings their innovative Stig of the Dump to the West End following a successful UK tour.

Stig is a caveman with shaggy black hair and bright black eyes who lives in a disused chalk pit full of people's dumped rubbish. Barney discovers Stig when he falls over the edge of an old chalk pit and tumbles through the roof of his hidden den. Barney and Stig become best of friends and embark on exciting adventures together, causing a little mischief along the way. The trouble is that no one believes that Barney's new friend is real. Nearly fifty years since Stig and Barney's adventures first saw the light of day, this timeless children's classic remains as charming and entertaining as ever.

Joining the cast for the London performances this summer is Katy Ashworth - Actor, TV presenter, musician, and entertainer best known for her storytelling skills in the Cbeebies house and at their live shows, her interactive live show Katy's Fun Time and fronting a 12-piece soul band in family music experience The Great Big Gig.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
