Tim Bray Adaptation of The Owl and the Pussy-cat

The long-time children’s theatre director and writer has adapted Edward Lear’s quirky poem The Owl And the Pussycat, which he first staged at the Central Theatre, now home to the SiLo Theatre, in 1992.

“This time, the show’s director, Amanda Rees, wanted more poppy tunes,” Bray says. “Christine White has written new songs and lyrics.”

Kneel Halt plays the owl, Abigail Greenwood the pussycat and Bray himself is the narrator, piggy-wiggy, parrot and turkey.
