Maura Halloran’s Pussy is clever, quirky, and full of wit and insights into human nature that only a pussycat can have. The title character is a cat owned by a lesbian whose romance is on the rocks. Writer and actor Halloran, Eric Jansen’s guest on this week’s Out in the Bay, plays both soon-to-be ex-lovers, their mildly homophobic but clearly curious landlady, and Pussy, a keen observer of human behavior who knows more than she’s able to say. Halloran shifts smoothly and convincingly between all four characters, and is especially delightful to watch jumping onto furniture and calmly licking herself as her ‘masters’ bicker long-distance.
Meet all of Pussy‘s characters and creator Maura Halloran on Out in the Bay, 7pm PST Thursday 11/20 on kalw.org worldwide/ 91.7 fm SF Bay Area; after broadcast at the link below.
