Imagine you were a Manxmouse. A mouse without a tail, with huge ears and you aren’t grey, no, you are blue! Who will eat you? Who will chase you? The dog wouldn’t, the cat wouldn’t and the fox would certainly not! You are meant for the Manx Cat, that’s what all the animals say. That’s your destiny, there’s nothing you can do about that! So Manxmouse goes and seeks for his doom. Eventually, he runs into him on the Isle of Man.
“Good afternoon, Manxmouse,” says Manx Cat. “I have been awaiting you for years. I hired the stadium to carry out the doom. But, perhaps you want a cup of tea first?”
MANXMOUSE is an adventurous play about a brave mouse. He may have failed as a mouse, but nevertheless, he succeeds very well at being Manxmouse! Based on the novel Manxmouse by Paul Gallico, this play has many puppets, animation and music.
