Mog – The Forgetful Cat

dramaMog is a very forgetful cat. She forgets that she has a cat flap, she forgets that she’s already eaten her supper, and she forgets that cats don’t have eggs for breakfast every day. Bother that cat!

But Mog’s forgetfulness can come in handy.

Join Mog and the Thomas family, on a journey through one year in the life of a really remarkable cat, as she catches a burglar, gatecrashes a cat show, goes to the V.E.T. and gets to eat lots and lots of eggs. Everyone’s favourite cat might be forgetful, but she certainly has a lot of adventures, and she loves her family very much.

The Wardrobe Ensemble (whose The Stage Award winning Education, Education, Education transferred from Royal & Derngate to the West End) adapt Judith Kerr’s beloved and iconic stories for the stage, in a lively and enchanting production directed by Jesse Jones and Helena Middleton (Pippi Longstocking), with songs, live music and a menagerie of creatures little and large. These timeless tales of family and friendship are brought to life to allow a new generation of children to fall in love with Mog.

Based on the bestselling Mog picture book series by Judith Kerr, published by HarperCollins Children’s Books.
