Stick by Me

Created by Andy Manley and Ian Cameron, co-creators of international hit show White.

WINNER OF 2019 CATS AWARDS FOR BEST PRODUCTION FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

On tour in Scotland September / October 2019 – see below for dates

“.. .a joyful and funny show…” The Guardian ★★★★

“What a wonderfully wise and big-hearted show this is – one that will stick in the memory, whatever age you are.” The Herald ★★★★

“It’s a stick. It’s just a stick.” But for one, all alone, this stick has something special. And soon the two are the best of friends. They run, play, hide and rest…and stick together when things get tough.

Beautifully crafted, making treasure from everyday objects, Stick by Me is a joyful show about friendship and play, and the importance of treasuring little things.

“as big a delight as a small show for children can be” ★★★★ The Times

Physical comedy and no shortage of laughs for the kids from the excellent Andy Manley’ The List ★★★★

“Manley has the target audience of 3 to 6 year olds in the palm of his hands….A wonderful production bolstered by a light-touch score.”  Reviewsphere ★★★★

“Andy Manley is undoubtedly one of the treasures of Scotland’s current theatrical landscape…”  Broadway Baby ★★★★

speaks directly to the experience of pre-school children, and makes its point, with the simplest of means. Scotsman ★★★★

The show embodies everything children’s theatre should be – thoughtful, beautifully crafted and performed; and engaging for all ages”  Liz Moran, Artistic Director, Gulbenkian

‘A true celebration of the nature of children’s play. Inventive and a little bit cheeky, Andy Manley once again proves why he is such a master of creating works for young audiences.
Noel Jordan, Festival Director, Edinburgh International Children’s Festival
