Oedipuss In Boots

An original alternative comedy by The Wardrobe Theatre

25th Dec
Ages 14+ | Christmas 2012, Shambala Festival 2013, Touring Brighton, Bristol and Exeter 2013

Far away in the kingdom of Thebes, the royal kitten Oedipuss is cast with the dark prophecy of killing his father and marrying his mother. After being abandoned, Oedipuss thought he’d found happiness and a new home but instead his world is thrown head over paws and this brave kitty goes on an incredible journey meeting monsters, villains and heroes as he tries to outrun his future and is forced to confront who and what he is.

Join The Wardrobe Theatre this Christmas for Oedipuss In Boots, a new mother loving puntomime full of dark, twisted, adult humour and far too much anthropomorphism for its own good. Following the unprecedented success of Home Alonely, last year’s anti-Christmas show, The Wardrobe Theatre are proud to present their second in-house production.

“Brilliantly bizarre and hilarious… A truly engaging and original slice of theatre.”
★★★★ Bristol Theatre Review

“A fantastically ridiculous, twisted alternative to your traditional Christmas pantomime.”
The Public Reviews

“Some truly brilliant – and twisted – ideas and the gag rate is high enough that Oedipuss In Boots is a great evening’s entertainment.”
Inter:Mission Bristol

“A brilliant bonkers evening.”
