 ‘No matter your size, we all have a mouse and a lion inside.’

A Rose Original Production with Nicoll Entertainment, Curve, MAST Mayflower Studios, and Unicorn Theatre

Based on the book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field
Adapted & Directed by Sarah Punshon
Music & Lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer

A heart-warming story about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar. 

‘In a dry dusty place where the sand sparkled gold, stood a mighty flat rock, all craggy and old. And under that rock in a tinyful house, lived the littlest, quietest, meekest brown mouse.’

Fed up of being ignored and forgotten by the other animals, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes ... and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!

Based on the multi-million copy selling book by Rachel Bright & Jim Field published by Hachette Children’s Group, this brand-new adaptation for stage is directed by Sarah Punshon (The Jungle Book), with music and lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer (Brief Encounter).
