PUSSY

Nov. 14 - Nov. 30, 2014

The story of two estranged lesbians, one curious landlady and a highly opinionated cat. PUSSY follows the tangled heartaches and misadventures of Leslie and Jo, a lesbian couple on the brink of breakup. Their vaguely homophobic but clearly curious Russian landlady Ana is listening intently but no one has stronger opinions on the matter than their pet cat, "Pussy." It's a tale of love& sex, softball & unicorns, gardening & faith, miscommunications & three outsiders whose fates triangulate around one spectacular cat.

PUSSY originally premiered at San Francisco’s DIVAfest with staging by
Claire Rice and Julianne Fawsitt, toured to New York and Seattle, and
returns to prowl NCTC direct from its European debut in London!

 

Written and Performed Maura Halloran

Critics have been purring about PUSSY since it first premiered. Curl up to these reviews:

 

Out in the Bay

"Clever, quirky, and full of wit and insights into human nature that only a pussycat can have."  

 

San Francisco Chronicle

"The comedy is crisp. The acting is delightfully precise. If you're allergic to "Cats," and even to the animal, Halloran's "Pussy" may be just the remedy you need."

 

San Francisco Examiner

"She gracefully takes command of the stage as she assumes varying personae.”

 

San Francisco Bay Guardian

"...laugh-out-loud romantic farce..."

 

SeattleActor.com

"astonishingly talented actress ... characters who are profoundly truthful, deeply affecting…"

 

NYTheatre.com

"…a refreshing and enjoyable hour of theatrical fun."
