About the company 

Cat and Mouse Theatre was founded in 2012 by Joe Mulcrone and Merry Colchester. Initially working small scale providing characters and small pieces of set for club nights, the company soon grew to be working with festivals and companies to rework entire spaces to a certain theme and fill it with performers, music and interactive elements to bring the space to life. This work has taken them on to cdevelop the ever expanding 'Charlie Brown's Speakeasy' - collaborating with Will Mercer and Emily Williams at Boomtown Fair, Brixton East and The Rose Theatre. In 2014 the team worked with TEDx Courtauld Institute on their set of talks entitled 'Colouring Life'. Now with a reputation for no holes barred characters, and performers with the ability to mould themselves to any scenario and bring spaces to life, Cat and Mouse are working across film, theatre and events with a number of clients including:


Boomtown Fair


Gallivant Film

Motion Group Pictures

Secret Cinema


MWR InfoSecurity 


Alongside this work, Joe and Merry also began collaborating with Matt Rudkin of Inconvenient Spoof. The result of this collaboration initially manifested itself in the 'very very funny' 'Buddhism: Is it just for Losers?,' which went on to be shown at the Camden Peoples Theatre and enjoyed two sell out runs at the Brighton Fringe. Following this the three are now working on a new show entitled 'The Room in the Elephant' - this show about making a show has been described as 'intricate, intelligent comedy' and 'the finest self-referential bullshit you could ask for.'
