In the barren immigration office of a strange country, two naïve applicants wait (and wait… and wait….) for their papers to be approved. Between escapades with naturalization forms, barking loudspeakers, and a tangle of miscommunications, our heroines navigate absurd catastrophes small and large with infectious optimism and remarkable endurance.
Ils ne savient pas que c’etait impossible, alors ils l’ont fait. (They did not know that it was impossible, 
                                         so they just did it.)

“A beautifully conceived and realized production... Play so organic it feels like sleight of hand... This was Clown taken to the level of poetry. The clown as poet, and sage, and fellow traveler. It was a tribute to the spirit and the craft of Clown.”
