A (virtual) play about anxiety for kids and their grown-ups, created in collaboration with an expressive arts therapist.
Petunia and Chicken
A two person turn of the century epic prairie love story inspired by the works of author Willa Cather, told with just a hat and a scarf.
“A gorgeous presentation of the American pioneer narrative using physical theatre and an earthy prairie palette … I know little of Willa Cather’s writing, yet I was fully engaged in this show. Wholesome and worthy.”
Peter Pan, from the perspective of Mr. and Mrs. Darling, two parents struggling with the loss of their children.
“This polished, highly intelligent, desperately sad show will linger with you.”

The Mountains Did Quake, The Hillsides Did Tremble
The Epic of Gilgamesh, the oldest story ever known, reimagined as a tool of rebellion in an authoritarian society.
“Brown and Muasher are top-shelf storytellers, able to guide an audience along a journey from belly laughs, to thoughtful introspection, and even to fear. Using a minimalist set and shadow puppetry, Animal Engine creates worlds within worlds within worlds”
A French farce told by dogs. A retelling of Georges Feydeau’s “Le Dindon.”
“If Feydeau were around to witness Dog Show, he would never have written for mere humans again. Satire is much more fun doggie style!”
-NY Theatre Review
Age of the Android
An immersive adventure about Thomas Edison’s greatest (and unknown) invention, told from three different perspectives.
“Karim Muasher’s direction orchestrates the orbits of incident and interplay of identities and contrasts of perspective masterfully.”
The Vindlevoss Family Circus Spectacular
A reformed zombie and a mustachioed anthropologist must put on a entire circus to discover what it means to be truly human.
“A hilarious mix of clowning, pantomime, puppetry, and delicious absurdity!”
