Following its run at the Pleasance in Islington in 2014 as well as two runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the stage adaptation of Dr Seuss’s The Cat In The Hat will return to London from the 6th December.

The production will return to the Pleasance Theatre in Islington for the Christmas period and is presented by Paul Taylor-Mills who has recently been named Artistic Director of St. James Theatre, which will be relaunched as The Other Palace in February.

Based on the book by Dr. Seuss and originally adapted and directed by Katie Mitchell, this production was originally produced in 2009 by the National Theatre of Great Britain.

This latest production is directed by Lillie Collier and designed by David Shields. It is presented through special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Plays Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre International (MTI).

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 craziest of ideas, he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home?   

The Cat in the Hat will play at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington from the 6th December until the 2nd January 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit:
