Stick by me

A quirky new show about friendship and play, and the importance of treasuring little things. Created by Andy Manley and Ian Cameron, co-creators of international hit show White.

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
