Get ready for the 12th installment of Monkey With a Hat On's Ten Minute Play Festival! This spring's performance brings three fantastic nights of circus-themed, 10-minute plays to the historic Clinton Street Theater. Think: The story of Siamese twins wanting to separate, bearded ladies fighting, a musical involving a Bird-Boy looking for his lost parents, the hospital room of an injured tightrope walker, two bank robbers who are dressed as clowns, a young man who jumps the train to join the circus, the story of love on the circus train, the story of a small circus troupe, three clowns who attend a job training seminar, and the mysterious case of the lion tamer's missing head!

In between plays, MWAHO is pleased to provide interlude music by the talented Kiran Moorty. A transatlantic rustic traveler, Moorty plays music that is guttural, tribal and reminiscent of a foreign land. A one-man circus act, he plays the accordion and several foot pedals hooked up to percussion instruments—a suitcase, a snare drum and cymbals. He will take the audience on a journey throughout the circus, singing and playing the story to us all.

The train's coming into town, folks, and you don't want to miss the show!
