I'm not going to confirm whether Weez is correct or not until later in the weekend, as others may wish to have a guess.

Be careful here because 'Old Possums Book Of Practical Cats' could very well be read on stage for the festival AND not a staging of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' as most know it!

But then it wouldn't be 'Cats', it'd be 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats'.

The Donmar like to bully me (in the nice way) so I'm fairly confident I know basically what they're up to at any given time. ^_^

No trick questions here - it's Cats ofcourse.

So that's an extra tub of ice-cream at the interval for, errrr, everyone who responded!

Though it does make me wonder what a Donmar take on Cats would be like. I imagine them all in plain black costumes (like Pacific Overtures): they don't need to look like Cats - the acting should be enough to communicate the felinity. re: A quiz for the weekend
