The Story of the Little Gentleman is a beautiful, funny and moving story about the power of friendship.

“Will you be my friend?” All the Little Gentleman wants is a friend… A friend he can sit in the sun with and listen to the birds A friend to walk with and share his cookies

But nobody seems to like the Little Gentleman and nobody wants to be his friend.

The Little Gentleman thinks he will live a sad and lonely life forever… Until one day he is woken up by a curious dog who just wants to play.

An energetic two-hander with an original score by Danny Krass and design by Karen Tennent, this is a playful celebration of friendship and acceptance.

This is an interactive performance where children will be seated on artificial lawn. Benches will be provided for adults.

Suitable for 4+ years

“Silly, loveable moments between man and mutt that are funny and charming and quietly wise in what they depict about loneliness, friendship and the special relationship that can exist between people and pets.” Mary Brennan, The Herald

“Not a movement, a sound, a look or a voice is out of place… a truly charming piece of theatre.” The List

Catherine Wheels Theatre Company
