A tale of love best heard through a tin-can telephone

Join us at the Globe Theatre Shumiatcher Sandbox for Countries Shaped Like Stars; the story of Gwendolyn Magnificent and Bartholomew Spectacular that starts with demanding dragon fruits and ends with heartache whispered into the ears of birds and constellations. With performer-operated lights, water glasses, whirly winds and a mandolin, Mi Casa Theatre (Ottawa) create the sounds and images of a landscape forever altered by regret.

Receiving rave reviews and five star designations, this whimsical play has been performed in almost every province and as far south as New Mexico.

Appropriate for ages 15+.
