Synopsis

The play's theme is the struggle of youth to surmount the established conventions of a society which divides all cats into three rigidly maintained categories. At the outset, the idealistic young cat feels that he is a misfit since he does not possess the characteristics of his respectable middle-class "lion" parents. As he struggles to establish his true identity, however, he discovers that these characteristics are only masquerade costume pieces which obscure the fact that all lions, his parents included, are really only plain cats like himself. At the core is the desperate struggle of the individual to maintain his integrity under the pressures of social conformity.

Customer Reviews

"The Cave Cats is a lot of fun for junior high. It relates to the search for identity."
Review by Becky Alfaro, Beckville Junior/Senior High School, Beckville, Texas
"The Cave Cat is an extremely suitable play for junior high, for many reasons. Primarily, students at this age identify with the play's main theme. Additionally, the flexibility of the casting allowed me to include a large number of students, perhaps the most important factor, since OAP contest is the only theatrical opportunity for our junior high students."
Review by Patricia Bienek, Arp Junior High School, Arp, Texas
"This show forces us all to examine our true selves. To recognize that deep down we are all the same. We allow race, religion, politics, etc. to divide us from the reality that we are all humans, in this life together. Put aside differences for the unification and advancement/progress of humanity."
Review by Greg Gibbs, Lincoln North Star High School, Lincoln, Neb.
