If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

A fast paced comedic adaptation sharing a “birds eye view” of all the “joys” of parenthood – told through the eyes of a child and one hyper, hungry and persistent mouse who politely asks for a cookie. This simple request sets off a chain of events leaving behind a massive mess, a ragged child and the true personification of Karma. Suitable for all ages.

Based on the best-selling series of books by Laura Numeroff. Directed by Laura Stevens (Co-Founder Manhattan Children’s Theatre now residing in Edinburgh) with performers, designers and professionals from Edinburgh.

This fast paced, comedic adaptation shares a “birds eye view” of all the “joys” of parenthood – told through the eyes of a child and one hyper, hungry mouse asking for a cookie. Using oversized props, as seen from a child’s perspective (including cookies, milk, crayons, and cleaning supplies etc.) this 60-minute show for all ages provides giggles galore from children and sighs of relief from parents who aren’t responsible for the clean up!

Having performed to sell out crowds at Manhattan Children’s Theatre and hundreds of other theatres worldwide, Stevens was privileged to bring this show to The Assembly Fringe 2018. This was her 4th Fringe production (The Last of the Dragons – Pleasance 2015, Mermalade – Pleasance 2016, Robin Hood – Assembly 2017) all having received 4 & 5 Stars across the board, as well as two tours throughout Poland.
