ABOUT

Puss in Boots, or the Master Cat, is one of the great fairy tales in Western literature. First put to paper by Giovanni Francesco Straparola in the 1550s, Puss in Boots is the story of a talking cat who serves his poor owner by his wits, making his master wealthy, finding him love, and stealing him a kingdom. Ludwig Tieck’s 1797 stage version of the play, first performed in German, is a brilliant amalgam of the fairy tale, children’s theater, and social satire. Rarely performed in the United States, Tieck’s Puss in Boots, a Fairy Tale for Children is a joyous early example of absurdist theater.
