The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse

The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse

Inside a modern fairytale.


One day Mouse is gobbled up by a wolf. ‘Oh woe’ says Mouse, who fears this must be the end. But then we discover Duck, who was, until Mouse arrived, taking a nap.

As it turns out, it’s pretty nice living inside the belly of the beast with a new friend. There’s delicious food, dancing and – better still – no more fear of being eaten!

Meanwhile, outside in the forest, things aren’t quite as rosy for Wolf who is being stalked by a hunter. Realising their fates are intertwined, Duck and Mouse hatch a winning plan…

Join us this Christmas for the stage adaptation of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen’s brilliantly subversive picture book which finds joy and friendship in the darkest and most unusual of places.

Age Recommendation: 3 - 7

Critic reviews

Extremely amusing stage adaptation of Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett’s subversive children’s story

Time Out

McNamara’s production is full of playfulness and captures the absurdity of the original

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

An enjoyable but tonally uneven production that captures some of its source book’s surreal charm
