What if we could understand the language of cats? William Baldwin’s satirical 16th-century novel Beware the Cat tells the story of a curious theologian whose alchemical experiments reveal the talk of cats amongst themselves.
This entertaining and visual performance reading brings Baldwin’s book to the stage for the first time.
