The Owl and the Pussycat, various venues, October to November

The Esk Valley Theatre will be touring North Yorkshire, Cleveland and Cumbria with The Owl and the Pussycat by Bill Manhoff from Saturday October 13 to Saturday November 10.

A comedy hit on Broadway in the 1960s, with Alan Alda and Diana Sands, it was also made in to film starring Barbara Streisand and George Segal.

The play is about two unlikely neighbours. Doris wants everyone to think she is a talented model and actress and Felix wants everyone to think he is a talented writer, but that’s not quite the truth.

Both have identity issues and through the course of the play they start to discover who they really are.

“The Owl and the Pussycat is a heart-warming comedy about unexpected love and the attraction of opposites,” said director Mark Stratton.
