The Witty Puss

 

The duo, the Brothers Grimmig, present the famous fairytale “Der gestiefelte Kater” (Puss in Boots). Wait a minute! The title says “verstiefelte” not “gestiefelte”… So this story is a bit different: It is about the usefulness of white lies, about using self-confidence in hopeless moments, and about knowing that small can become big and big can become small if you want it bad enough. The piece is furnished with an element of petty crime. Beware! In a shabby varieté you enter a world in which only wit, questioning authority, and a few wry tricks can guarantee a good life. What once seemed to be preordained and serendipitous can, when necessary, be avoided or even eliminated. For these types of stories the playful world of the theater is the best place to learn the self-confidence for such subversions!
