The Mouse and His Child

Tamsin Oglesby, based on the book by Russel Hoban

Oberon Books

“Dark, serious yet also funny.” —The Guardian

Acclaimed as one of the classics of 20th century children’s literature, The Mouse and His Child is a moving story about two clockwork mice thrown on a scrap heap who then have to begin a dangerous quest for a place to belong. It is adapted for the stage by Tamsin Oglesby and will be directed by Paul Hunter, Told By An Idiot’s Co-Artistic Director. The Mouse and His Child continues the Royal Shakespeare Company’s long tradition of creating new stage adaptations of much-loved childhood tales—including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, The Heart of Robin Hood, and Matilda The Musical, the RSC’s award-winning Roald Dahl adaptation, currently playing in the West End.

Russell Hoban was an American writer of fantasy, science fiction and poetry. However he is perhaps best known for his children’s tale The Mouse and His Child, which was made into an animated film in 1977. Tamsin Oglesby is currently under commission to the National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company and Hampstead Theatre. Her plays include My Best Friend, The War Next Door and Really Old, Like Forty-Five.

Tamsin Oglesby’s previous plays include Only the Lonely (Birmingham Repertory Theatre), Us and Them, My Best Friend (Hampstead Theatre) and Two Lips Indifferent Red (Bush Theatre).
