Reckless Tricycle presents a deadpan farce about two bewitching Yaroslavl sisters who are determined to make their magical feline, Skazka, the toast of Moscow’s Cat Circus.

Can the circus master who wants to take Skazka to the big time be trusted? And is their pussy strictly legal? Nobody in Yaroslavl is quite who they appear to be, not even the werewolves. This fractured comic fable draws on age-old Russian fairy tales and Ionesco-fueled absurdity to create an uplifting fantasy of shifting identities teased by frolicsome, feline ambition.

Theatre is Easy

"A top-quality farce…The situation could easily spin out of control, but with this excellent cast the humor only increases with each side-splitting scene…All of it made me smile, chuckle, and shake my head, dumbfounded at the stupidly clever catastrophic puns. And the three main characters are wonderfully crafted. Writer Leonhard-Hooper gives life to each with excellent phrasing and strange pasts...I joyously cackled throughout this brilliant play and cheered for a spectacular performance." Full Review
