The Dukes welcomes the original Stig


A great family night out is promised by The Dukes when Stig of the Dump comes to Lancaster on Tuesday 22nd October.

The well-loved children’s classic has been adapted for the stage and features puppetry and performance by Mind the Gap, one of the UK’s leading disability related theatre companies.

An enchanting tale of a unique friendship, Stig of the Dump is a magical story to captivate and inspire anyone aged eight plus.

An enchanting tale of a unique friendship. Stig wears rabbit-skins and speaks his own language and uses empty tin cans for a chimney. In his world the outsider is king, nothing is wasted and a dump is filled with endless delights.

Barney has scuffed shoes, grazed knees and dirty fingernails, in his world anything is possible, the mundane becomes magical, summer holidays last forever and the sky is as big as his imagination.

The show will be performed by a cast of four professional actors, three of whom have a learning disability, and continues Mind the Gap’s mission to create high quality awardwinning inclusive theatre.

Children will watch with delight as everyday objects are transformed into people and places before their eyes in this show for families to share together.

• Tickets are priced £11/£9. Concessions £2 off. Schools £8. To book, please contact The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org
