Description

We think we know this story. But when two older women retell a familiar tale, they find dark places and unanswered questions. Entering life's gloriously chaotic duckpond, they celebrate the pains and joys of lives well-lived. Maria MacDonell and Jo Clifford write and perform this novel storytelling reimagining, directed by Ian Cameron and with designs from Ali Maclaurin.
