More About "Dick Whittington"
The engaging story line, originally dating back to the 1600s, has become a legend, retold in dozens of screenplays and pantomimes over the last four centuries. In fact, the first tellings of "Dick Whittington" tread on the same timeline as some of William Shakespeare's works.
Based on the semi-fictional story of wealthy merchant-turned-Lord Mayor of London Richard Whittington, this whimsical tale recounts Dick Whittington's climb out of poverty on the streets of England and into the arms of wealth and luxury -- all thanks to his trusty cat.
According to legend, Mr. Whittington climbed his way up from poverty by hiring out his beloved cat to help destroy the local rodent population -- a crucial service, as the Black Plague was sweeping Europe at the time.
