From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that The Cat in The Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and the craziest of ideas, he is certainly fun to play with. And he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home...?

The National Theatre's production of Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat is a lively, engaging "play with sound effects" for performance by adults for young children. Not a word has been touched or added to Dr. Seuss's classic, ensuring anyone who's read the story will find themselves transported into the world they've always imagined.

The timeless tale of class differences and swapped identity based on the novel by Mark Twain. A delightful social satire centering on Edward, Prince of Wales, and Tom Canty, the son of a beggar. Whe a chance encounter gives them a glimpse of the other's life, the boys take the opportunity to experience a way of living they'd always envied. Edward puts on Tom's worn-ojut clothes and has a chance a freedom from constantly being told what to do, while Tom enjoys Edward's luxurious lifestyle. It ecomes increasingly clear, however, that neither Edward nor Tom know how to heave in their new environments. Things soon go haywire for both boys, causing them to switch back...without forgetting the lessons they've learned.
