The Owl and the Pussycat

In association with → The Point, Eastleigh. Toured in Spring/Summer 2012

A nonsense adventure for 3-7 year olds and their families. Follow Owl and Pussy Cat as they set out on the high seas with only some honey, money and a runcible spoon to help them find their way through a topsy turvey world! Along the way they meet the piggy wig, the turkey who lives on the hill and the strangest looking tree you’ll ever see!

Enjoy this absurd hogwash of nonsense featuring silly songs, babbling puppets and smaller than life characters. Puppetry, live music and beautiful storytelling combine in this enchanting retelling of Lear’s classic poem.
