Freckle Productions are delighted to announce that Stick Man, based on the
book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, will return to
London in 2018 for its eighth annual West End season. The run will coincide
with the 10th Anniversary of the book.
'Stick Man lives in the family tree
With his Stick Lady Love
and their stick children three...’
But what starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure for
Stick Man: a dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with
him, and he even ends up on a fire! How will Stick Man ever get back to the
family tree? Packed full of puppetry, live music and funky moves, Stick Man
is a touching, funny and utterly original adaptation that will delight all
Stick Man is adapted from the book by Julia Donaldson, the multi
award-winning author of some of the world's best loved children's books,
most notably the modern classic The Gruffalo which has sold over 13 million
copies worldwide. Julia is best known for her popular rhyming stories for
children, especially those illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which have sold
millions of copies and have been translated into over 40 languages.
Stick Man is a perennial bestseller and has been translated into 23
languages. In 2015, Magic Light Pictures premiered the animated film of
Stick Man with an all-star cast including Martin Freeman, Jennifer Saunders
and Hugh Bonneville. The film was the 4th most-viewed 2015 Christmas Day TV
programme in the UK, and the book went to number one in the children’s
chart. In 2018 Stick Man celebrates its 10th anniversary.
Stick Man is produced by Freckle Productions, who have brought many of Julia
Donaldson’s books to the stage including Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales
and the forthcoming premiere UK Tour of Tabby McTat. It has original
direction by Sally Cookson (A Monster Calls, Old Vic Theatre) with design by
Katie Sykes (Jane Eyre, National Theatre), lighting by Elanor Higgins
(Private Peaceful, UK Tours) and music by Benji Bower (A Monster Calls, Old
Vic Theatre). The Associate Director is Mark Kane. Photo credit (above):
STEPHEN K AMOS: Bouquets and Brickbats
8th, 9th, 15th and 16th February 2019
All performances at 7pm, except 15th at 9.30pm
All tickets £21.25 (plus £3.19 per ticket booking fee). Concessions £19.25
(plus £2.89 per ticket booking fee).
Highly acclaimed, uplifting stand-up comedian and broadcaster Stephen K Amos
is back from his world tour and hits the road with his brand-new tour Bouquets
and Brickbats. His main aim is to cheer us up, for a moment, and try to help us
forget what a mess the world finds itself in right now.
Bouquets and Brickbats. Praise and criticism. Love and hate. Why such extremes?
Everyone these days seems to be an expert, a critic, a judge. Or a victim. Are
we a nation of snowflakes with an unwarranted sense of entitlement, unable to
process opposing opinions.?
Do people really understand what they feel so strongly about, and does knowledge
promote more neutral feelings? Why is everybody either mortally offended or so
much a fan that they fail to see the faults?
Two years after Brexit and Britain is more divided than ever. Forget everything
that’s going on in the world, and immerse yourself in the warming comedy of “one
of the most likable figures in British Comedy” (Radio Times).
As seen on Pointless Celebrities, QI, The People’s History of LGBT (BBC), UKTV’s
Celebrity Storage Hunters and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, and BBC1’s Live At
The Apollo and Have I Got News For You, as well as What Does The K Stand For? on
BBC Radio 4. The Stephen K Amos Talk Show, in which Stephen invited popular
stand-ups to chinwag about this, that and the other, was filmed at last year’s
Edinburgh Festival and is now available on Amazon’s Audible.
Stephen is also taking part in the new three-part series Pilgrimage: The Road to
Rome, alongside Katy Brand and Les Dennis. The BBC Two series, which will air
soon, sees celebrities give up their creature comforts to follow the Via
Francigena trail – to finish up at the Vatican.
