Town Mouse and Country Mouse

Town Mouse loves the city’s breakneck speed and all the gifts people leave him. Country Mouse prefers the wide open fields and sweet fresh air of the country side. They’re so different it looks like they will never get along.

But when a cat arrives on the scene will they overcome their differences and win against the odds?

Town Mouse and Country Mouse is a re-imagining of the Aesop’s fable about the triumph of friendship and the joy of adventure. Adapted especially for Nottingham Playhouse, this production has social and emotional learning at its core.
