In this adaptation by Rory Pierce, the story could not be told without the
help of the audience. There are only three cast members, the hapless miller's son, the
beautiful princess, and the indispensable Puss in Boots. The audience rounds out the rest of the cast in the roles of selfish brothers, the parents of the princess, the King and Queen, and even the ogre himself (or herself, depending on the audience), as well as the rest of the kingdom.
