for ages 7-11

An Apples and Snakes and Half Moon co-production

DIGITAL ON DEMAND TOUR – A spoken word tale of new friends and disastrous adventures. Available throughout 2023/24. Please enquire.

The Cat-Astrophic Adventures of Dollop and Crinkle is being presented as an ‘as live’ performance for digital broadcast, as part of Half Moon’s digital performance platform. 

Put your sofa in the front row with a digital performance of The Cat-Astrophic Adventures of Dollop and Crinkle, live-recorded at Half Moon and professionally filmed and edited. Join us for an online performance that puts the best seats in the house into your own home.

When Crusty and his scruffy cat Dollop arrive on Supreme Street, things will never be the same again. After meeting their neighbours, Dr. D and her spotless feline Crinkle, things quickly get out of hand. Soon there’s a full-scale battle of words, tinned beans and cooking pots, fuelled by misunderstandings and the inability to listen to others.

This spoken word poetry show is heartfelt, provocative and full of quirky humour, telling the action-packed story of new friendships and adventures that go cat-astrophically wrong.

Originally commissioned in association with London’s SPINE Library Festival 2021 and Apples and Snakes – England’s leading spoken word poetry organisation.
