It is an ill-omened day when Tatiana Dressler pulls a drowning cat from the surging waters of the River Schwartz.
Tatiana’s father, a struggling inventor, has designs on the unfortunate feline, naming the cat Count Frederick Sebastian and setting to work on an ingenious contraption to humanise the creature. The cat is of a murderous disposition, developing a taste for a neighbour’s prized canaries – but canary slaughter is not the only suspicious activity being investigated at the Dressler residence. Death-fixated Tatiana fears the worst is just around the corner.
Full of sinister secrets, improbable inventions and murderous mayhem, this blood-thirsty comedy comes from the author of the UK Theatre Award-winning Mister Holgado.
A play for adults but suitable for brave children aged 8+
