About: The Adventures of THUNDER and COAL: Scratch


A man in a daze, a mouse in a maze: what’s at the end of all these tunnels? Thunder and Coal explores the parallels between the lives of the mice in the London Underground and the bigger mammals fumbling darkly up above them.

Probably one of the world’s first IT-middle-manager-step-parenting shadow-musicals, the show features a live band, animation and songs about supermarkets, steamy beverages and shifty commuters. There is no unicycling.

NONESUCH is the new company set up by the composer-writer Ben Glasstone and other key artists behind Little Angel’s cult hit musical The Mouse Queen.
Development of the company supported by a bursary from Puppet Centre Trust.

“A marvelous musical…Glasstone successfully mixes wildly disparate styles, from Klezmer to Renaissance madrigal, and his lyrics are inspired" The New York Times
“Wonderfully imaginative… a truly original piece of work” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“…original songs so hummable West End composers ought to take note. Don't bother about a child as a pretext: just go.” Evening Standard
“Perfect and witty in every way.” Emma Thompson.
Price: Pay What You Can

Reviews for The Mouse Queen:
“…impossible for anyone, of any age, to resist …It’s a wonderfully inventive work that genuinely has something to say – and has terrific fun saying it. A joy.” The Times
