A new stage adaptation of the classic 1970s children's television series. Read More >

Mr Benn is a new stage adaptation of the classic 1970s children’s animated television series.

Mr Benn’s world is turned upside down when he stumbles across a small dusty shop overflowing with costumes. As if by magic, the shopkeeper appears and shows Mr Benn into a changing room containing a special door that leads to extraordinary adventures.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of David McKee’s character, Tall Stories – whose productions include The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom – creates this new stage adaptation, bringing Mr Benn to a whole new generation of children.

Suitable for ages 3+
