"Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it is correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well. He was the stinkiest stinky stinker who ever lived…"
It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit, but he’s the only person who has been nice to her. When it looks like he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide Mr Stink in the garden shed.
Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose.

Mr Stink aims to raise the issue of homelessness in our minds. Dragonfly Theatre could not do this play without recognising the issue of poverty in our community. Therefore, proceeds of this show will go towards 2 charities who work with homelessness:
Helping Orphans Worldwide (http://www.helpinghow.org) is a non profit organisation comitted to providing hope, health and security to abandoned or neglected people.
Tiny Hearts of Hope (http://www.tinyheartsofhope.org/) works with street children of Saigon offering them shelter from dangerous, poverty stricken streets in the "Hope House".
