The insanity of war, love in the time of tyranny, and one’s tenacity to stand against fascism.
“Mrs. Haggardly’s Home For Wayward Children” is an orphanage that sits on the outskirts of the Great Brutal War, and each day the drums of war draw closer.
Mrs. Haggardly and her two companions, Madame Pigslips and Mrs. Busybottom, are the matrons of the orphanage who cunningly use their wiles to resist the pillaging fascists who have come to recruit the orphans for soldiers. In this world of war, Mrs. Haggardly and her companions rise to the challenge to feed, clothe, and protect the orphans.
Actors and musicians conjure opera, spectacle, and illusion to create an evening of fascinating performance. “Why must we have war, my child? We cannot resist the temptation. It is the dilemma of the Fox and the Turtle.” ~Mrs. Haggardly
