A performance based on Joan Aitken's series of classic books about a little girl and her mischievous pet raven. When Arabel and her irrepressible friend Mortimer the raven spend a fun-packed evening with their favourite babysitter Chris Cross, they have no idea of what chaos they will leave in their wake. A reckless game of dressing up and hide and seek results in a number of domestic accidents, a trumpet wedged onto Mortimer's head, and a milk shortage! While Arabel, Mortimer and Chris are out replacing the milk, Arabel's parents return home to find the house empty and apparently ransacked. Can it be that a black mamba has escaped from the zoo? Or has Arabel been kidnapped? Age 4-10 years
