“Love is a strange thing to find in hell. But for some reason, here it has flourished…”

Meet Terrence.  Terrence is a novelist stuck in a story written by his cat Twitters.  But what does Kit, a lost little girl, have to do with Twitters?  How much does a soul go for these days?  And who the hell are Chaz and Smacky?

a cat wrote this play. made its debut in our late-night show Serial Killers, where it ultimately won the First Annual Serial Killers Playoffs this summer!  The showdown was brutal. The competition was bloody.  The votes were close.  “Cat” survived.

Come find out why: the seventeen haunting, reeling episodes of the serial have now been crafted into a single hour-long fairy tale that’s spooky, hilarious, and surprisingly poignant.  From the playwright who brought you Beaverquest! The Musical! and the “breathtakingly inventive” (L.A. Times) The Mechanical Rabbit.

See the absurd story that kept audiences hooked for months.  It is in turns heartbreaking, mysterious and uplifting- a Lynchian fairy tale full of laughs, romance and accordion music.
