Preview: Mr Stink at Jesmond Dene
Heartbreak Productions returns to
Newcastle with its 24th Summer Tour
Coleman’s Field, Jesmond Dene, Newcastle
Friday 19th – Sunday 21st June 2015.
Heartbreak Productions is returning to Coleman’s Field, Jesmond Dene on Friday 19th– Sunday 21st June with its family show, Mr Stink, an original adaptation of the successful David Walliams novel.
Mr Stink unfolds at a birthday party for Annabelle Crumb, the spoiled sister of the book’s heroine, Chloe. With the audience members as party guests, this interactive, outdoor adaptation of the story focuses on themes of bullying, acceptance, and tricky family dynamics as Chloe’s new friendship with the homeless Mr Stink threatens to derail her mother’s political and social ambitions.
Jane Austen’s Emma
Later in the summer, Heartbreak will also be offering the Newcastle audiences Jane Austen’s Emma and Shakespeare’s Love’s Labours Lost.
Heartbreak Productions aims to tell stories that inspire, entertain, and
challenge, and this summer, the stories also carry a common theme centred on young people. With that in mind, Heartbreak is offering a 2 for 1 discount to audience members aged 16-24 at its Saturday matinees. These special offer tickets can be purchased at the venue on the day of the performance. Limited availability.
Mr Stink and Chloe
Peter Mimmack, Artistic Director of Heartbreak Productions explained “The hero of the piece Chloe is going through the trauma of hormonal teenage years with an unsympathetic and controlling mother. Her impetuosity of housing the local tramp Mr Stink lead her family to the brink of breaking up.
This is a story about a young girl growing up, the fragility of family life and how emotional support can come from the most unlikely of sources.”
