The Classic American Comedy
'The Owl and the Pussycat'
By Bill Manhoff
A comedy hit on Broadway in the 1960’s with Alan Alda and Diana Sands, ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ was also made in to a hugely successful film starring Barbara Streisand and George Segal.
The play is about two unlikely neighbours. Doris is a part-time prostitute but wants everyone to think she is a talented model and actress. Felix works in a book shop but wants everyone to think he is a talented writer. Both have identity issues and through the course of the play they start to discover who they really are. ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ is a heart-warming comedy about unexpected love and the attraction of opposites.
Age Guidance: 13+
‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ is presented by Special Arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
The Community Hub is set in almost 4 acres of land with superb views across the surrounding moors accessed along a metalled road that forms part of the original railway line that ran from Whitby to Pickering. Located between the village cricket ground & sports field with hard standing car parking for 50 vehicles it has uninterrupted views across the moors, the tranquillity only interrupted by the sound of the passing steam train winding its way between Pickering & Goathland.
The Hub which is a registered charity is run on a day to day basis by a Management Committee reporting to the Board of Trustees & then to the Charities Commission.
