About The Priory

Now Pirate Dog always looks pretty attentive when I tell him a story about other animals, but I really can’t be sure that he understands a single word. So all I got was a puzzled look when I told him the story of a mouse being spotted on the set of Michael Wynne’s The Priory, currently on at the Royal Court. Of course, this is one of those fabled situations where fact is better than fiction: the play takes place in an isolated former priory now being rented out for seasonal parties. So it’s a suitable set for a mouse’s guest appearance — or did it choose the set because it looked familiar? Anyway, surely the Court has a resident cat? Apparently not, at least not since the demise of Osborne, its old growler. Time to get another: but what to call it?

    McGlinchey? Nice rhyme with clinch (as in mouse in paw)
