★★★★ ‘Extremely amusing’ Time Out, 2019
'Warm and witty' The Stage, 2019
‘Anyone with a wickedly dark and quirky sense of humour should go and see it’ The Young Londoner, 2019
Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen’s brilliantly subversive best-selling picture book, The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse, returns to the Unicorn after a sold-out run in 2019.
One day Mouse is gobbled up by a wolf. ‘Oh woe,' says Mouse, who fears this must be the end. But he quickly discovers he is not alone… Duck is also there, taking a nap.
As it turns out, it’s pretty nice living inside the belly of the beast with a new friend. There’s delicious food, dancing and – better still – no more fear of being eaten!
Meanwhile, outside in the forest, things aren’t quite as rosy for Wolf who is being stalked by a hunter. Realising their fates are intertwined, Duck and Mouse hatch a winning plan…
The Unicorn's new Artistic Director, Rachel Bagshaw, directs this deliciously dark and hilariously funny fable that delights in the notion that friendship can sometimes be found in the darkest and most unusual of places.
