“Scanty, Snappy and Fun! The Owl and The Pussycat!”
"The Owl and the Pussycat" is based on a play by Bill Manhoff and more popularized by a screenplay written by Buck Henry for George Segal and Barbara Streisand in 1970. It has always been a fun story of a ‘cat’n’mouse’ dynamic between two very different people and there is no better play about when opposites attract each other.
This story will be familiar to many people. It deals with the difficult relationship between Mother and Daughter. Told through Jane and her Mother, who in death reaches her Daughter by leaving her in charge of finishing her novel. Jane (Joanna Kalafatis) is emotionally closed and not in sync with her Mother’s feelings about life. There is a resentment that comes from Jane towards Mom (Mary Burkin ), the voice of wisdom, and she is not going to give in to Mom’s advice, who appears as a persistent ghost continually directing her how to handle her life and how to write the novel. Jane’s roommate Ali (Samantha Carro) is a perfect opposite and brought home the differences in the two girls.
