It’s really quite simple. This is a play (with songs) based on the book The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat, by Eric Idle (who was in Monty Python), inspired by the poem, The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear. Got it?

This surreal and brilliantly chaotic new musical follows the Owl and the Pussycat on their mission to save the world and defeat the dastardly Firelord, his imaginary dragon, Pyron, and his henchmen, Flicker and Brimstone.

With Professor Bosh’s help, they seek the magical Bong Tree which will lead them all to safety in the Land of Bong.

Their adventures take them across the Gromboolian Plains, down a river of jam, and over a frozen rainbow – helped on their way by a host of wonderful characters including a resurrected dinosaur skeleton, the Pie-Rats and a dancing Pig in sunglasses.

This fantastically imaginative new musical adaptation of Eric Idle’s best-selling book is a celebration of nonsense, and is sure to enthral and delight children aged 6+, their families and anyone with a sense of fun and wonder.

Create Onsight were commissioned by the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry to illustrate their upcoming performance of The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat, by Eric Idle. The brief was to create artwork that would promote the show in the style reminiscent of the infamous Monty Python animations by Terry Gilliam. The typographic style is also inspired by his work. Take a look below to see how we created the artwork from montaging various images together to create the desired effect.

The artwork was used for all marketing materials from the seasonal brochure through to social media, posters, leaflets, banner stands, the website and outdoor advertising.
