Amphitheatre Performance


This summer the Dream Team present a visually stunning stage version of Antonia Barber's classic Cornish children's story The Mousehole Cat. This new adaptation is completed by the award-winning playwright Alan M. Kent (author of Surfing Tommies and National Minority) and is directed by Cornish-born director Guy Watson. Using incredible puppetry, as well as a talented team of actors, the drama tells the story of how the West-Cornish village of Mousehole is saved from desperate famine by the brave actions of fisherman Tom Bawcock... and his faithful cat, Mowzer. Expect battles with the fearsome Great Storm-Cat, seven sorts of fish and lashings of Star Gazy pie! This is one fisherman's yarn you won't want to miss my 'andsomes!
