An acclaimed stage adaptation of Dr Suess's The Cat in the Hat is returning to London this Christmas.

Suess's much-loved book was adapted for the stage in 2009 by the National Theatre by Katie Mitchell.

The new production, which ran at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, is directed by Lillie Collier, produced by Paul Taylor-Mills and designed by David Shields. Casting will be announced soon.

The Cat in the Hat runs from 8 December 2014 until 4 January 2015 at the Pleasance Theatre, Islington. The show is suitable for young children aged 3+.
