About the show

The Owl and the Pussycat live in a dull and dusty world, so imagine how shocked and surprised they are when a stupendous storm sweeps them out of the window,


On to an unexpected sea voyage to a curious land.

But who will they meet? Which way should they go? And, what is a runcible spoon?

A joyful journey for energetic little explorers and their grownups.

Using puppets and live music, Kitchen Zoo brings to life an unexpected telling of Edward Lear’s The Owl and the Pussycat.
