Fred and Ginger. Laurel and Hardy. Marks and Spencer. And now… Archy and Mehitabel.

Theatre Nation have adapted Don Marquis’ delightfully humorous & satirical verses into a one-hour one-person show.  In the 1920’s, writer Don Marquis invented Archy the cockroach and his sometimes muse, Mehitabel the cat – ‘I was Cleopatra once’. Both are convinced they’ve lived previous lives. Once a ‘free verse poet’, Archy is now trapped inside the body of a cockroach. He inhabits Boss’ apartment, discovers a typewriter and sets about recording  his private memoirs for posterity. In this characterful, physically dynamic one-person show. Entertainment with satirical claws and bite.
