Shannon Matthews: The Musical is a dark, daft comedy which revels in the ridiculousness of the real-life story of mother-from-hell Karen Matthews. Inspired by the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, she decides to fake the kidnapping of her own daughter, little Shannon Matthews, aged nine, in an attempt to cash in the reward money.

In August 2022 Shannon Matthews: The Musical made its stage debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In October 2022, a Kickstarter campaign successfully funded the production of this feature film adaptation of the musical.
