up next: Petunia and Chicken at the Publick Playhouse
"Minimalist theater at its absolute finest."
"A clever, sweet and imaginative journey."
-NY Theater Now
"An exquisite show ... damn fine theater."
-Cincinnati City Beat
Inspired by the writings of Midwestern author Willa Cather, two daring performers create an epic story of love and loss as big as the prairie itself.
Petunia, an indomitable immigrant girl determined to tame the wild land around her, meets Chicken, a right smart boy with dreams of great adventures. As the joys of their youth give way to the harsh realities of adulthood, they struggle to stay together.
Sprawling fields of wheat, bustling train stations, rain-soaked kisses, wind-blown hair, and the rest of Petunia and Chicken’s world are brought to life with imagination, movement, and song.
WINNER of the 2013 Cincinnati Fringe Festival Artists' Pick of the Fringe, 2013 League of Cincinnati Theatres Best Overall, and 2014 Frigid New York Festival Favorite Award.
"Petunia and Chicken" plays for just 2 performances at the Publick Playhouse in Cherverly, MD.
