Edward Lear’s Dream – The Owl and the Pussycat

You and the family can see Edward Lear’s Dream – The Owl and the Pussycat at The Courtyard this September.

Open your mind and step inside Edward Lear’s brilliantly anarchic world of nonsense rhymes and limericks. Embrace the silliness, dive into a sea of words, an absurd alphabet soup of poppycock and gobbledygook… Edward has lost his beloved cat; Foss. Tired out from writing his famous Book of Nonsense, he falls asleep at his desk. As he dreams, he journeys through magical lands meeting a host of fantastical creatures along the way. In Sea Legs’ 21st anniversary year production, meet celebrated Lear characters, the Quangle Wangle, the Jumblies, the Fissgigious Fish and the greatest literary love story since the Dish ran away with the Spoon: the legendary Owl and the Pussycat. Told with a cast of fabulous tabletop puppets, an innovative stage set and a brilliant musical soundtrack, featuring six new songs to Lear’s much celebrated poems and limericks.
