CHEESY CHEESY CATCHY MOUSEY to Play Camden People's Theatre in June

Cheesy Cheesy Catchy Mousey bills itself as being about cheese. And mice. And tuffets. And igneous rocks. And the director is quoted as saying "it's definitely about something." Absurdist in tone, but real in its messages, we have it on good authority that it's really about the media and the concept of truth in today's world.

The main character, Sam, (Helder Fernandes, recently seen in Our Generation at The National Theatre) has a simple question and he's seeking answers everywhere, from his mum to the Guardian to Twitter. This dark comedy shows what it feels like to be in a social media rabbit hole, where answers are difficult to find.

It promises to be a laugh-out-loud play in which almost nothing is as it seems. And it's a unique night out too - audiences will be able to follow a QR code to vote to shape Sam's journey along the way, and even volunteer to say a line in this interactive absurdist comedy, supported by Arts Council England. (Volunteers only, nobody will be forced!)

Catch the first showing of it in June, as this one's surely destined for bigger theatres in the future!

Cheesy Cheesy Catchy Mousey will run Friday 23rd - Sunday 25th June, 7pm at Camden People's Theatre (58-60 Hampstead Road, London, NW1 2PY)

Running Time is 90 minutes with interval.
