The Cat in the Hat to return to the Edinburgh Fringe


One of the most popular children’s shows from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival is set to make a triumphant return to the Pleasance Courtyard next month.


The Cat in the Hat, which is based on the famous Dr Seuss book, will run at Pleasance One from Wednesday 5th – Sunday 30th August.


The Cat in the Hat tells the story of two young children who are bored because the rain is forcing them to stay indoors and find something to do. Their boredom is short-lived as, upon hearing of their unhappiness, an eccentric talking cat comes to pay them a visit and, in turn, manages to wreak havoc in their home.


Tickets for the show, which is recommended as a “lively and engaging first theatre experience” for those aged 3+ are on sale now and can purchased from
