Clown sisters Morro and Jasp are feeling the pinch of the economic downturn and decide to make ends meet by tackling John Steinbeck's classic Of Mice and Men. Who knew Steinbeck could be so funny? Forced to work as carnival clowns, the duo’s dream of owning a farm with rabbits comes to life with adorable props, myriad literary references and some help from the audience. The desperate clown sisters seek to stick to the story, but will they make it out alive? Of Mice and Morro and Jasp is a moving and hilarious interpretation of an American literary classic.

“The Amy Poehler and Tina Fey of Canadian clowning”

“Clowning can be fun and dynamic, even for (teens) and adults. Completely funny and endearing, this show is fantastic.
