Countess Arabella dreams of ruling the world, guided by a destiny that is written in the stars. Grandma bakes pies that taste like being held in big, strong arms, while Fish Man grows tired of his pockets full of holes. When rats, Angela and Charles, and their entire rat family move into Hamelin, the town is inconceivably changed. Inspired by the ancient legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin this is a musical tragicomedy of hope and folly.
The Pied Piper has toured internationally and played to sold out audiences at both the Melbourne and Prague Theatre Festivals.
