The Mouse tells stories because it doesn't want to get eaten by the Lion, the Lion because it wants to eat the Mouse, and the Tortoise because...well...because it wants to eat its lettuce sandwich. A Mouse, a Lion and a Tortoise are thrown together and tell some of the most famous moral tales in history with their own rather quirky spin. The Mouse tells stories because it doesn't want to get eaten by the Lion, the Lion because it wants to eat the Mouse, and the Tortoise because...well... because it wants to eat its lettuce sandwich. These animal raconteurs take us through a multitude of Fables involving wily wolves, dopey dogs, haring hares, flattering foxes and even silly humans. As relevant now as they were centuries ago, these bitesized tales are presented with effervescent verve guaranteed to delight.Company Theatr Na n'Og. Adapted by Kieron Self.
