Stray Cat Theater gives fair warning to theater-goers that they're not afraid to say it all in order to push the boundaries of theatrical art. For the last ten years they've been forging ahead in the local theater scene, making their home at Tempe Center for the Arts. The indie theater troupe specializes in provocative theater that could be described as experimental or alternative, though they prefer not to be labeled the latter. It's a quirky, edgy and irreverent experience and they push themselves to explore the boundaries of theatrical possibility with every season. That means provoking, challenging and sometimes jolting the audience as well, by pushing them to experience live theater in a fresh, new way. The troupe aims to attract a younger audience with doses of cussing and sex that might offend an easily-offended crowd. And they don't back down from typically taboo topics. In past shows they've put the spot light on Scientology, Columbine and other sensitive material.
