So, there’s this bloke. He’s stony broke. His name is Tristan Sprout,
He can’t afford to pay the rent; the landlord wants him out.
He has a cat called Roger who has several attributes
Of note: He talks and wears a pair of fetching kneehigh boots!
But then they hear a rumour of an Ogre on the prowl?
Can Tristan be a hero? Or will he throw in the towel…?
Stu Mcloughlin, actor and one half of Living Spit
(the tall one with the big ears and the legs that just won’t quit),
Reckons that a brand-new rhyming show could be the chance
For him to demonstrate his new-found skills in Irish dance!
Howard (he’s the bald one) needs the new show to succeed,
But against his better judgement he’s reluctantly agreed.
Told entirely through song and rhyming couplets, Living Spit’s new version of Puss ’n’ Boots promises all the usual frolics, festivities and foolishness, plus the answers to such burning questions as:
Is Stu’s Irish dancing actually any good?
How are they going to do the Ogre?
What’s the refund policy?
Running time 100 mins inc interval
Age guidance: 10+. A small amount of strong language and awful puns.
Howard, the one in the string vest if you’re lucky enough not to know Living Spit, won’t be in this show as he’s poorly. Bev Rudd will be playing his part and she’s brilliant. We’re busily changing all the “he’s” in the script to “she’s”. Once we’ve done that, we’ll start rehearsing it and it’ll be better than ever.
