Girls On The Roof
Show with Iowa's Poet Laureate!
Iowa Poet Laureate Mary Swander's new book of poetry is one long narrative poem about a mother and daughter stuck on top of the roof of a cafe on the banks of the Mississippi River for three days during the 1993 flood. While they are there, the women discover that they have both had an affair with the same man.
In this one-hour adult production, Swander reads poems from her new book while puppeteer Monica Leo brings the scenes alive through the use of hand, rod, and shadow puppets. This show, filled with old time music, romance, intrigue, humor, folklore, and the flora and fauna of the Mississippi River basin, will dazzle the ear with its poetic rhythms, and delight the eye its likenesses of an unforgettable cast of characters.
