Petunia and Chicken


Inspired by the works of Midwestern author Willa Cather, Petunia and Chicken present an epic story of love and loss as big as the prairie itself.

Petunia, an indomitable immigrant girl determined to tame the wild land around her, meets Chicken, a right smart boy with dreams of great adventures.  As the joys of their youth give way to the harsh realities of adulthood, they struggle to stay together. Sprawling fields of wheat, bustling train stations, rain-soaked kisses, wind-blown hair, and the rest of their world are all created by two performers with just a hat, a scarf and song.
