David Wood

Published by Samuel French Ltd

Large Mixed Cast
As well as loveable Cat and young lad Dick, this panto yarn presents swashbuckling pirates, lots of Rats, and fiercesome Barabary princesses!

The townsfolk of London gather to greet Sir Richard Whittington on his installation as Lord Mayor

A voice of dissent in the crowd belongs to a young boy who resents the acclaim given to "'a wealthy nob like him", who is unlikely to help ordinary folk

The crowd explains to the boy that this Lord Mayor is different and has helped many ordinary people ....

They then tell the story of Dick Whittington

And the boy plays the young Dick

Dick wins the friendship of young Alice, and becomes involved with the Fitzwarren family

And a brace of swash-buckling pirates

And the lovable Wondercat

And a traditional 'dame' Bertha the Cook

Dick's story takes him from the depths of despair and disgrace to his triumph, with Wondercat, defeating the rats infesting the home of the Queen of the Barbary Coast - who turns out to have been educated in England!

"A panto with everything colour, excitement, pathos, a lot of humour, and a wonderful understanding of children brilliant children's author David Wood has done it again a triumph the author's clear understanding of youngsters' minds" ~ Thurrock Gazette
