The Attic

A man. A rat. A tale as old as time. 

Exhausted diner worker Hank lives a normal life in New York City… until he meets a six-foot rat named Rat Stanley who lives in the hole in the wall. Hank needs money, and Rat Stanley needs cheddar. They strike up a deal to get what they need… and antics ensue. 

A new musical written by Jack Hemhauser and Johnny Peacock based on the first episode of New Mountain Media’s Making it Work, The Tale of Man and Rat is guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and fall in love with a giant rat.
