The Amazing Maurice
Maurice is a sassy, street-smart cat with a sneaky disposition. Together with his band of rats and pied-piper friend Keith, he travels across the countryside, swindling villagers with a staged rat plague. All seems well when the gang sets its sights on a scenic market town, though they quickly realize that something more nefarious is afoot. The town is already plagued by food-snatching rats, a pair of criminals, and a mysterious boss at the heart of the trouble.
Joining forces with resident narrator and mayor’s daughter Malicia, Maurice and his friends investigate trouble, fight daring battles, and discover the truth of the town’s unfortunate events. A love letter to fables and the art of storytelling, The Amazing Maurice is funny, clever, and always unexpected. Featuring the voices of Emilia Clarke and Hugh Laurie, this flipped-on-its-head fairy tale is one of a kind, pure fun for all audiences.
