In the hours when most people are tucked up, sound asleep in their beds, Midnight the cat rules the roost. She explores the rooftops and alleyways of her town, encountering all the other creatures that are awake in the night. And in the still, quiet moments between one day finishing and the next one beginning, she has the ability to see and to understand all the dreams of the people sleeping in their beds below. But when a wild wind blows through the town, strange things begin to happen.
Midnight is a dream-like show about time, the night and dreaming. And about clever cats and really silly dogs.
Midnight is aimed at ages 5 – 11. The show deals with ideas of time and dreams in ways to engage this age group. There are some funny characters and sections of lively music, but the pace and language of the storytelling is not geared to very young children, and the theatre will be dark for the night-time scenes.
