Penny McCarthy’s gallery of ‘Beware the Cat’ series of illustrations

Two Cats Talking - Beware the Cat series (c) Penny McCarthy

Fine Art Reader Penny McCarthy writes about the research behind the Beware the Cat series of illustrations in a new blog post on the project’s website.

The gallery of ink and brush illustrations are a response to Penny’s reading of the 16th Century text written by William Baldwin. Researchers from the disciplines of Fine Art, Theatre, Literature, and Linguistics at the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam and Sussex have collaborated to reinterpret the text for a contemporary theatre audience.

Their multimedia adaptation is playing in venues around the UK this summer and includes performances at Brighton Fringe and the RSC at Stratford-upon-Avon.
