Written by award-winning author Chris Grabenstein, “Curiosity Cat” is a funny, touching play about Claire and Charlie, who are forced to live with their father’s Aunt Jenny when their mother falls ill. A stray cat named Curiosity also wanders into the house and when he breaks Claire’s prized music box, she immediately throws him back out into the streets. The children later set out to rescue Curiosity, who is busily trying to help other forlorn felines find homes while simultaneously avoiding a newly appointed “cat catcher” who vows to put him to sleep. The play is a touching comedy filled with laughter, learning and heart that’s ideal for the whole family.
