CARRBORO BOARD OF ALDERPERSONS

The Mouse that roared.

Tonight at 7:30 at Carrboro High School is the final performance of The Mouse that Roared. It's about the nation of Grand Fenwick that invaded the US and won by capturing the Q-bomb. Originally a cold war book it reminds me of current events of the last 60 years. A theme in the book was the formation of the Tiny Twenty to ban weapons of mass destruction. Lichtenstein, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Mexico, Iceland, Ecuador, Grand Fenwick and others form an alliance and with the threat of the Q-bomb won world peace.
