Two clown sisters — naive, sweet Morro (Heather Marie Annis) and bold, loud Jasp (Amy Lee) — are travelling to their first wild spring break vacation. But they get lost in the woods on their way — all the better, since the show is presented entirely outdoors in Stephen Juba Park. (Spectators sit on carpet squares in front, chairs behind, and the river is the backdrop for the action.)

The opening scene, where the pair argues over the songs on the radio, could’ve come right out of a kids’ show — until the radio starts playing a very explicit rap song. When they eventually begin debating everything from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Self-Actualization to sexual ecstasy, you know this ain’t no kiddie show!

Annis and Lee make the most of the outdoor venue, crawling and tramping through the grass (and spectators), and even venturing right into the river. The performers showed their improv chops in their many involved audience-participation bits.
While the storyline frequently see-sawed between kid and adult entertainment, the comedy definitely stands out in the festival.

— Janice Sawka
