Production details

Many, many years ago when cats were cats and mice lived in fear of their lives, there lived a particularly wonderful cat. A magical cat who wore magical boots and made magical things happen. There also lived a miller’s son who had nothing but his poor father’s mangy old moggie to keep him company. From a distance he admired the beautiful daughter of King Charles of England. From a distance he watched the wicked rule of the all-powerful Lord Protector. And he wished that he could do something…and suddenly, as if by magic (feline magic perhaps), his wishes become true. Cheer for the wonderful Puss! Gasp at the dashing swordplay! Sigh at all-conquering love! Laugh at Nell Gwynn’s daft old mother! You are invited to the wonderful pantomime world of Roundheads and Cavaliers and an adventure story where all comes out happily in the end. Supported by media partners BBC Radio Suffolk and the Bury Free Press.
