The Cat's the Thing

Drayton Arms Theatre - 26th/27th September

Tickets found here:

Tanya is a woman with a lot on her mind. Dale is a cat with really nothing to do whatsoever. Despite their differences, these two are confined to a room with no apparent reason to stay except for a sensational event that will take place on the 25th of an unknown month. Tanya senses the event will be life-changing but one thing stands in her way. The door. Will she find her freedom? This is an absurd comedy based on the reality of living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
