An original theatrical premiere featuring their trademark blend of visual theater, puppetry, and physical comedy.
February 27th- March 14th
Intrepid entrepreneur Constance is recently arrived in Austin in search of a more Authentic Lifestyle. Her plans to open an extravagant sundries shop in East Austin are thwarted by the former residents of her recently flipped bungalow, namely a colony of monk parakeets who have other plans for their longtime home. A comic exploration of Austin’s current economic expansion and population explosion, with an eye to what happens to those who were already here, featuring puppetry and physical comedy (in the tradition of Lucille Ball and Charlie Chaplin.)
