The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse (Ireland)
Contract Writers Award from The Arts Council of Great Britain

Originally commissioned by Merseyside Young People's Theatre Company of Liverpool and subsequently performed by London's Polka Children's Theatre.
Folktale. Adapted by Vicky Ireland.

Cast: 2m., 3w., with doubling, or up to 7 (2m., 3w., 2 either gender) with added puppets. A national success in England, this feisty enactment of the popular tale of a country mouse in a great city turned into an irresistible play. William Boot, a country mouse bored with rural life at his grandmother's house of Toecap Cottage, is visited by his city cousin, Monty. William Boot then learns that he has inherited Tallyhoe Lodge in London. Joyfully, William departs with Monty and runs a gauntlet of adventures—among them a dangerous cat, poisons, traps and the wiles of two tricky twin mice, Snowey and the malicious Silver. At last, a wiser William returns to Toecap Cottage, grateful to settle down in his rural paradise. Production notes are available in the script containing descriptions of set, props, music and sound effects. Storybook setting as described in the script. Area staging. Approximate running time: 60 minutes.
