  • An image of an illustrated grey stripy cat with yellow coloured eyes (left). On the right, text reads: Judith Kerr's Mog The Forgetful Cat, Adapted for the stage by The Wardrobe Ensemble. Mog is in a larger font in yellow whilst the rest is in black.

Join everyone's favourite, forgetful, egg-eating cat Mog on a journey full of adventure.

Mog is a very forgetful cat. She forgets that she has a cat flap, she forgets that she's already eaten her supper, and she forgets that cats don’t have eggs for breakfast every day. Bother that cat! But Mog’s forgetfulness can come in handy...

Join Mog and the Thomas family, on a journey through one year in the life of a really remarkable cat, as she catches a burglar, gatecrashes a cat show, goes to the V.E.T. and gets to eat lots and lots of eggs. Everyone’s favourite cat might be forgetful, but she certainly has a lot of adventures, and she loves her family very much.

The Wardrobe Ensemble adapt Judith Kerr’s beloved and iconic stories for the stage, in a lively and enchanting production with songs, live music and a menagerie of creatures little and large. These timeless tales of family and friendship are brought to life to allow a new generation of children to fall in love with Mog.

Join us in the Balcony Bar for a pre-show family craft session based on the Judith Kerr book Mog The Forgetful Cat. Make and decorate a beautiful cat mask and take it along to the show with you. Find out more
