If you’re looking for a bit of theatrical entertainment this Christmas look no further than Stig of the Dump at the Tabard. It’s brilliant. Clive King’s classic tale which many of us read at school tells the tale of eight year old Barney who falls over the edge of a chalk pit and meets a real live caveman.
No one will believe him but as the play goes on both his sister and the local yobs, (a realistically intimidating teenage gang, who double as cavemen later) come face to face with the sweet but very forceful Stig. Although most of the attention is on Julian Bailey-Jones and Lewis Meagor as Stig and Barney, the whole cast is very talented and there’s not a weak moment in the production. The set is fantastic.
