The Cat; A Play    

Written by Jan G. Hansen

A dramatic rendition of the picture book The Cat, written for a narrator, six characters and a chorus of rocks.

From the book

Narrator:

Once there was a cat. She was a special cat.

Cat:

I'm not that special. No different from anyone else, really.

Narrator:

Not too many cats can talk.

Cat:

Aw, they just don't have much to say.

Narrator:

All right. She was a regular everyday cat. The cat was a strong cat. (Cat strikes a pose) She was caring (Cat strikes another pose), she was brave (Cat strikes a third pose), and she was lonely.

Cat:

I need someone to care for.

Narrator:

She also liked going for long walks.

Exit cat.

Narrator:

On a dry summer day a rabbit hopped through the woods.
