‘Bother that cat!’ 

Mog is a very forgetful cat. She forgets that she has a cat flap, she forgets that she’s already eaten her supper, and she forgets that cats don’t have eggs for breakfast every day. 

But Mog’s forgetfulness can come in handy… 

Join Mog and the Thomas family, on a journey through one year in the life of a really remarkable cat, as she catches a burglar, gatecrashes a cat show, goes to the V.E.T. and gets to eat lots and lots of eggs. Everyone’s favourite cat might be forgetful, but she certainly has a lot of adventures, and she loves her family very much.

The Co-Directors are Helena Middleton and Jesse Jones, Musical Director is Joey Hickman, Designer is Laura McEwen, Sound Designer is Beth Duke, Lighting Designer is Rajiv Pattani and Movement Director is Catriona Giles

Mog the Forgetful Cat was devised by Tom England, Joey Hickman, Jesse Jones, Helena Middleton, Hanora Kamen, Kerry Lovell, Jesse Meadows, Robyn Sinclair and Ben Vardy. Additional devising by Tom Brennan, Emily Greenslade and James Newton
