YOU probably think you know all there is to know about the owl and the pussycat and their marine adventure, but this ebullient show tells us much more. The pussycat is actually a stowaway, while the owl is running away from home in shame because he can't fly. Owl and Pussycat gleefully embark on their moonlit voyage, breaking into occasional songs and nifty little dances. Although the tiny boat is only the size of a bath tub, they play daft games of hide-and-seek and sardines in it, to the chortling delight of the audience.
