About This Show

The winners of last year’s FRIGID Participants Pick Award are back again! 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 only imagination, movement, and song.

Winner of the 2013 Artists’ Pick of the Fringe – Cincinnati Fringe Festival and 2013 League of Cincinnati Theatres Best Overall.

“At the end of the show, you feel good. You are happy and hopeful. You know you are in the presence of love. As well as great theater.” -Cincinnati City Beat
