Wednesday 28 November – Sunday 6 January

This Christmas, the Tabard Theatre brings another literary classic and family favourite to the stage in Clive King’s Stig of the Dump.
When Barney, a day-dreaming eight year old falls over the edge into a chalk pit he discovers Stig, a modern day caveman and together they embark on an original fantasy adventure. Thrills, excitement, danger and fun abound as their worlds collide. Barney saves Stig from poisoning by providing a little ventilation, building a chimney (from tin cans) and windows (from jam jars) for his home in the dump. They fight off burglars who break into Barney’s grandmother’s house, go hunting, and Barney introduces Stig to the outside world. This adaptation by Richard Williams was first performed at the West York Playhouse and also enjoyed a successful run at the Tabard Theatre in 2008. With a soaring musical score and packed full of action and adventure, Clive King’s Stig of the Dump will enchant the whole family.
