everybody wants to be a cat

because a cat

is just

a cat

From “acclaimed clown” (To Do List London) and emerging idiot Frankie Thompson, an anarchic one-woman adaptation of Cats (the musical). But not about cats, not about musicals, not about Cats the musical. CAttS is a lip-sync ballet through the distractions and obsessions that help us cope with an increasingly dystopian reality. Because after all, wouldn’t we rather think about cats?


Content warnings: show contains flashing lights, loud sounds, references to body dysmorphia, and eating. Also, for bants, strong references to cats, if you’re allergic or scared of animals, just in case, don’t come.
