Details

Varjak Paw is a young Mesopotamian Blue cat. He lives high in a house on a hill. No-one in his family has ever set paw outside; not since their legendary ancestor Jalal. But when the sinister Gentleman and his two black cats come to the house, Varjak must seek help. Alone in a dark and dangerous city, he encounters a world of tough street cats and discovers in himself an ancient and magical martial art. Thrilling, action-packed and often funny, Varjak Paw is a dazzling musical tale about growing up, discovering friendship and thinking for yourself. It brings to life the best-selling books by SF Said, Varjak Paw, winner of the Smarties Prize Gold Award (2003), and he Outlaw Varjak Paw Blue Peter Book of the Year (2007). Age 8+ Age 8+. Running time 2 hours with 1 interval. Sung in English.
