PUSSY BOYby Christine Evans
Pussy Boy is a blackly comic urban fable, set under a freeway overpass. Bill is teaching young son Algy to "hammer straight and think useful". But when Bill evicts their bag-lady tenant, the Dog Lady, and the police remove her 14 dogs, Algy runs away. Bill hunts for his son; when he finds him hiding with the Dog Lady, a deadly choice is forced on Algy. A singing police chorus duo write an endless Report but are distracted by lust and the moon; they appear as unreliable angels to the dreamy Algy, trapped between Bill's violent world and the animal comfort of the Dog world.
