Moonbeam on a cat’s ear

In the middle of the night Rosie and Toby Toby, the cat and the mouse, sneak out to play in the shadow of the apple tree. When Toby Toby steals the moon from the sky they go on an adventure across the stars and the sea. But, is it all just a dream?

Based on the book by author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, written in French (Voyage au Clair de Lune) and English, Moonbeam on a Cat’s Ear is a visual journey into an exciting world of dreams and imagination.

Jabuti Theatre’s adaptation captures the beauty and detail of Marie-Louise’s illustrations using puppetry, physical theatre and magical light boxes and brings it all to life with a mesmerising original musical soundscape and score.
