The play brings to life for children the familiar figures from the books they know and love so well. Ingeniously combining stories from five of the books, we see Meg, Mog and Owl set off on an adventure to find the ingredients for a spell to get rid of an invading Stegosaurus – an adventure that takes them to a medieval castle, zoo and the moon.
“Meg and Mog Show is a stirring tale of Meg’s messy magic in which she tries to cast a spell on a rampaging stegosaurus with the aid of a white knight, a retired tiger and a helpful zoo keeper by way of a journey into space in a cauldron. It should enchant children and adults alike.” - Time Out
“For the very young, and particularly recommended for a first-time ever visit to the theatre…David Wood’s inimitable Meg and Mog Show.” - Times Educational Supplement
“One of the best examples of children’s theatre…a thoroughly enjoyable two hours…catchy songs.” - Times Educational Supplement
“David Wood’s well known story of the witch, the cat and the owl who just can’t get their spells right, in its fourth Unicorn production, directed by the master of children’s theatre himself.” - Sunday Times
“One of Unicorn’s most popular and successful productions for younger children with a winning combination of brightly coloured sets, magical effects, catchy songs and a hilarious story…ideal for five to nine year olds, but a treat for grown-up children too.” - Time Out
Unicorn Theatre commissioned Meg and Mog Show and produced it at the Arts Theatre, London, starring Maureen Lipman, for the 1981 Christmas season.
