Spike (Town Mouse) is a city slicker. He loves the fast pace of life, the bright lights and the noise and bustle of the town. Dandelion (Country Mouse) prefers the open spaces, the quiet and the simpler life of the country. What happens when they suddenly find themselves in the unfamiliar surroundings of each other’s very different worlds?
Based on Aesop’s fable, Town Mouse, Country Mouse takes the audiences on a magical journey into the world of the mischievous mice, while gently exploring themes of culture, diversity and understanding.
A play for children aged 4 – 6 years.
Running time approx 40 minutes.
