Pennsylvania, 1889. Two turnip farmers, Peter and Mary, suddenly lose their entire turnip crop in a ferocious winter frost. With little left to live on, they wander through the woods, searching for a solution, and seem to find their answer in the wonderful (and highly sought after) honey of the Buffalo Bee. Turnips! Honey! Trains! Exposition Universelle! Part myth, part made up, the story deals in dreams and success: what defines them, who defines them, and how they define us.
From turnips and bees to trains and the World’s Fair in Paris, the production combines live music, staging and video into a complete theatrical experience. It’s basically a two person musical with a lot of flair and whistles.
