Stig of the Dump

A magical new version of the beloved story, with a brand new wild and wonderful twist.

While the other children excitedly begin their summer holidays, Barney finds himself stuck in a new village with no-one to make friends with. Why? Because Barney is Deaf.

That is, until he takes a tumble into the deep, meets a caveman and begins an unforgettable adventure, where everyone is invited.

Join the junkyard band, discover an amazing new language and go wild with a caveman in this riotous celebration of friendship and kindness, adapted by acclaimed writer Jess Swale (Horrible Histories The Movie).

This production is created to be enjoyed by everyone in both the Deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing communities. Read more here.
