    Everyone has an insufferable cat lover in their lives. But this gets out of hand when the cat lover decides to hold a funereal service for a dead cat that isn’t even hers. It gets even further out of hand as the deceased cat is kidnapped by a would-be thief. The entire thing gets resolved in the final scene at a diner, where the thief gets her due, the cat lover is satisfied with the thief’s punishment, and everyone is left in stitches at the surprise ending.

    Dear Cat Lovers: Relax, no cats are injured in the production of this play.
