“Upon entering the United States, the first order of business for Heiner and Marishka Failbottom was to have their bottoms chopped off by an overzealous Ellis Island desk clerk.” – a sentence from this comic love story, set in Chicago in 1928, told by a small ensemble of actors who play all of the people, the animals, the music and most of the inanimate objects. To describe it in any more detail will rob you of the joyful surprise in every twist and turn of fate in this brilliant little fable.
