Joy with Wings: A Daughter's Tale

Written and performed by Becky Parker
Originally directed by Zack
Music by John Geist

After a devastating death, can a once-happy family find its way past mutual blame?

Travel through the bumpy mishaps and delights of a child’s view of the world, careen into a young adult’s view of her family falling apart and finally land in the world of the solidly grounded woman of the present, whose pilgrimage of self-understanding and acceptance takes the audience on a journey of laughter, music and poignant reflection. Departing from our typical Canterbury Tales repertory, Joy with Wings draws medieval wisdom into contemporary experience through the medium of the actor.

Chanticleer & the Fox: Nun's Priest's Tale

Performed by David Abad, Megan Finkeldey, Lucas Hatton, Becky Parker
Music and Direction by John Geist

Portentous dreams... philosophizing chickens... and British panto.
As if by magic, four Canterbury Tales pilgrims are pulled irresistibly into Aesop’s fable of Chanticleer & the Fox, with humans playing chickens playing humans, a flattering fox, and chicken coop nightmares. For this is a land of dreams… silly one moment as Chanticleer and his hen wife Pertelote tangle in a lover’s tiff… and dangerous the next when portentous dreams of ages past deliver their warnings… and then of course there’s a hungry Fox theologizing with his brunch. Elements of British panto keep everyone on their toes or paws or claws in this delightful tale.
