Eliot. The plot centres on a tribe of cats called the Jellicles, as they come together at the annual Jellicle Ball to decide which one of them will ascend to the Heavenside Layer (their version of heaven) and be reborn in to a new life. The sprawling cast features Sir Ian McKellen, Jud Dench, Vanessa Hudson, Idris Elba and introduces Francesca Hayward in her first mainstream leading role.
