Based on Perrault’s age-old tale ‘Puss in Boots’, Carter’s genius unfurls the feline raunchiness implicit in the original - the outcome, a feminist masterpiece of high comedy, targeting the male chauvinism imprisoning human sexuality. 
A scintillating blend of Perrault’s fairy-tale, Commedia dell’ arte and Mozart and Rossini’s operatic Figaro. It is about sexual intrigue and seduction seen through the green-eyes of a talking, booted, dilettante cat, who can somersault holding a full wine-glass and speak in French, the language closest to a purr. 
Music and lyrics have a feline quality, which the audience will find both magical and mesmerizing. The ribald cynicism of this marmalade tom-cat dandy sums up Carter’s radical treatment of traditional fairytales, which expose gender issues still relevant today. 
The show celebrates Bristol’s links to one of the 20th century’s greatest writers, who wrote five of her nine novels while living in the city. 
This uplifting and provocative entertainment promises to capture her subversive humour and to introduce or re-acquaint audiences with her highly original and wicked imagination. 
“The best story in the book [The Bloody Chamber], “Puss-in-Boots” deserves to be included in every prose anthology of this century or any other …[it] had me gasping with admiration” - Auberon Waugh
