Feathers, fur, skin, or scales?
The tape recorder skips. A memory misfires.
Somewhere a little bird falls from a great height.
A paper tiger crumples in its cage.
A baby is born.
A hermit crab grows too large for his shell.

dark fairytale featuring subtitled live acting, shadow puppetry,

We hope you'll join us for the (significantly) expanded,
revised premiere of "Little Mother" after its 2013
Frontera Fest workshop production:
"Another criminally under-seen play, this short shadow-play
penned by Katie Green was one of the most startling presentations
this year. A fable full of whimsy, heartbreak, and horror,
it uses clever puppetry, and excellent music and sound design,
to tell show us dual stories of a young mother pushed to her
limits to make ends meet, and a fable of two circus animals,
an elephant and a chicken, whose lives change when they come
across an abandoned child. The piece flows over one like a
passing dream, at times a nightmare, but it's a dream this
critic simply didn't want to wake from." - Ryan Johnson
of Austin Lifestyle Magazine (named one of the top 10 plays
"A dialogue-free evening of R-rated carnal oppression
the puppetry was lovely and the score sensualexcellent bandpassionate
performers." Jillian Owens, Austin Chronicle
