Hairy Maclary and Friends in Hammersmith
1
Out of the gate and off for a walk, went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.
Anyone with young children will recognise these immortal words instantly as the opening lines of the book Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy by Lynley Dodd. Following a sell-out run at the Fringe 2010, a UK Tour in 2011 and the Christmas season at the Sydney Opera House, Hairy Maclary and his friends are springing off the page once again this summer.
Featuring many of the characters from the books like Hercules Morse – as big as a Horse, Bottomley Potts – covered in spots, Schnitzel von Krumm with the very low tum and Scarface Claw, the toughest tomcat in town. With music, singing and several of your favourite Hairy Maclary stories, this show is a must for the whole family.
***** Fans of the storybooks cannot fail to enjoy this performance and every child should see this. – One4Review
**** This is old-school children’s theatre in all the right ways. – The List
When, after 55 minutes, the show came to an end, one little girl behind me just burst into tears, wailing that she didn’t want it to end at all. – The Scotsman
… Hairy Maclary was fab, my nearly 3 year old practically levitated in excitement … – Mums.net
A vibrant, fun-filled show that cleverly brings Lynley Dodd’s much-loved children’s books to life. – Primary Times
RUNNING TIME
55 minutes.

The utterly brilliant Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd is back on stage with friends Bottomley Potts – covered in spots, Schnitzel von Krumm with the very low tum and the very scary Scarface Claw along with the rest of his gang. A fun production that will have its rhyming nature joyfully repeating in your head for the rest of the afternoon.
