The 2002 World Premiere
An Avant-Garde Farce by Jason Kendall
With bedtime stories by French maids, magic candy
from flying witches, succulent borscht from the
Dells of Wisconsin, and a healthy dose of
uncontrolled nymphomania and sword-swashbuckling,
this raucous, absurd farce is
better than nitrous oxide! Open wide and say AAAAAAAH!
Original Music Composed and Performed by Donna Stearns
