Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
It’s only 60 minutes of physical theatre, but New York-based couple Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher take the audience on an epic journey in this absorbing love story.
When Prairie pioneer boy meets immigrant girl, the stage is set for happy-ever-after romance, with a few tragic twists, homespun songs and comic turns along the way.
Playing multiple characters, including a faithful old dog, this duo are deft hands at manipulating a few props — a pair of spoons, a hat and a scarf — and they’re equally adept at manipulating heartstrings.
I’m pretty sure the guy next to me was weeping like a little girl at the finish, and he was far from alone. Two-hanky, five-star material.

"A feat of storytelling using old-fashioned physicality and imagination." - Maxamoo, NY
Inspired by the writings of Midwestern author Willa Cather, two daring performers create an epic love story as big as the prairie itself.
Sprawling fields of wheat, bustling train stations, rain-soaked kisses, and the rest of Petunia and Chicken's world are brought to life with only a hat, a scarf and song.
