Oedipuss in Boots

Contact: The Wardrobe Theatre ()

As lightning cracks at the summit of Mount Olympus, the royal kitten Oedipuss is cursed with the prophecy of killing his father and marrying his mother. Outcast, this brave puss must go on an incredible adventure of self discovery, encountering crooks and charlatans, terrifying monsters and outrageous villains as Oedipuss tries to unlock the complex question of his destiny. But as he soon discovers, escaping your fate isn’t easy when you’ve got the King’s blood on your paws…

Fast, smart and devilishly funny, Oedipuss In Boots puts the romp in anthropomorphism. An original dark comedy from The Wardrobe Theatre (makers of Reservoir Mogs, Rocky Shock Horror, Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears, Nachos, Kirk Vs Ming and Muppits Die Hard) jam-packed with big laughs, puppetry, dance routines, musical numbers and unforgettable drama. Oedipuss In Boots is the ultimate Greek tragedy and the original mother-loving pantomime!
