Preview: That Pesky Rat, Soho Theatre, London

With the help of puppeteers Talk to the Hand, and the jazzy music of Kenny Mellman, Lauren Child's award-winning children's book, That Pesky Rat, will be brought to life at the Soho Theatre. Adapted and directed for three- to eight-year-olds by Jonathan Lloyd, the show begins with Pesky Rat alone in his dustbin wishing to be loved and wanted by an owner. He longs to leave Grubby Alley and have a posh home like his friends Pierre the chinchilla and Nibbles the rabbit.
