Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a cat? Or what the world looks like from a cat’s point of view? Would you rather be a black or a white cat? What are the rules of the cat-and-mouse game? Is it easy to become friends with someone who always knows best? One thing is certain—if you’re the least bit curious, then ‘The Adventures of Filemon the Cat’ is a story for you.
Grandma, Grandpa and their know-it-all cat called Bonifacy live together in a house. Then one day, everything changes with the arrival of a white kitten called Filemon. Filemon has just only started to explore the world and has a lot to learn: how to feed the Fire from the Oven, what are the favourite pranks of Aquarius from the Tub, how to tame the night … However, it turns out that the most difficult of it all is to make Bonifacy grow fond of him. This story, full of adventures and songs, is about a kitten who discovers what a real cat friendship means.
In this play, we see the world from a cat’s perspective. The house appliances may seem too big and people’s voices distorted. One thing is clear, though—there’s a lot we can learn from cats.
