The Mouse That Roared is a political farce set in the mythical country of Grand Fenwick. This tiny country is facing bankruptcy, so their unique solution is to declare war on The United States of America in the hopes of receiving economic aid after they lose the war. Complications arise when the Grand Fenwick attack on the United States unexpectedly succeeds! Grand Fenwick wins the war, and the terms for peace must be negotiated by their young ruler. Although the novel on which the play is based was originally written during the Cold War, modern audiences will recognize elements of current events in this comedy.
