Inside a modern fairytale...

One day Mouse is gobbled up by a wolf. "Oh woe" says Mouse, who fears this must be the end. But then we discover Duck, who was, until Mouse arrived, taking a nap.

As it turns out, it's pretty nice living inside the belly of the beast with a new friend. There's delicious food, dancing and - better still - no more fear of being eaten!

Meanwhile, outside in the forest, things aren't quite as rosy for Wolf who is being stalked by a hunter. Realising their fates are intertwined, Duck and Mouse hatch a winning plan...

Following our smash hit tour of The Giant Jam Sandwich, this New Perspectives and Unicorn production brings Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen's brilliantly subversive picture book to life live on stage. Join Wolf, Duck and Mouse on a fearless adventure which finds joy and friendship in the darkest and most unusual of places.

Our productions are testament to the fact that rural theatre is as relevant, challenging and vital as theatre made for any other environment.
