The Mouse and his Child
at Royal Shakespeare Theatre
A clockwork mouse and his child are discarded by children on Christmas Day. Lost and alone, they desperately want to get back home to the toyshop. Russell Hoban's masterpiece The Mouse and his Child is the tale which has inspired a thousand wonderful stories about what really happens in the toy box when we're not looking. This enchanting tale of escape, the search for freedom and reunited families is adapted for the stage by Tamsin Oglesby. It is directed by Paul Hunter, Co-Artistic Director of Told by an Idiot who directed the RSC's acclaimed Young People's version of The Comedy of Errors. It follows in the rich tradition of family classics adapted by the RSC including The Heart of Robin Hood, Matilda the Musical, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
