Old Deuteronomy

Old Deuteronomy moves slowly underneath his shabby old coat. The Jellicle Tribe spring to greet the ancient cat “who has lived many lives in succession” with many having to be restrained by Munkustrap as he moves through the junkyard. In all of his long lives, Old Deuteronomy has been “famous in proverb and famous in rhyme”.

Old Deuteronomy is the Jellicle Cats’ wise and respected leader who spends much of his days sitting in the sun “on the vicarage wall”. He cares about and respects each and every cat in his tribe, including Grizabella who he tries throughout the show to accept back into the fold. Old Deuteronomy can see the value of each and every cat within the Jellicle Tribe.
