£12.00£36.00 incl. zero VAT

The approximate running time of this play is 40 minutes.

A reworking of the famous tale (or is it tail?). A fun play involving mice, rabbits, squirrels, a hedgehog, delinquent rats, spiders, cats and a dog.


17 main speaking parts, non-speaking could be added.

Town Mouse goes to visit his cousin in the country and finds rural life not at all to his taste! Not only does he not sleep very well because of the noise the nocturnal animals make but then he has to get up at the crack of dawn and go nut gathering. And there’s nothing to do. So he persuades his country cousin to come and stay with him in the town but Country Mouse finds it far too dangerous. They have to steal their food; they get terrorised by rats and, to cap it all, he gets chewing gum stuck in his tail when they go to the cinema. Both mice decide, in the end, that they prefer their own lives.

As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume-making.
