Genre: Comedy, Solo Performance
Written and performed by Deborah Kaufmann, Directed by Janet Sturm and Wellington Nogueira

Take equal parts of dance, theater and circus clown, add Native American mask work, flavor with a pinch of bouffon, a touch of true mischief, and a nod to "Harold and the Purple Crayon," and you get this delightful look at greed and acquisition.

Mud, a comic sprite, seeks the perfect picnic spot. Finding it, she gleefully proclaims it "MINE" and marks it with chalk, trapping herself inside its boundaries. Magic spells expand her territory; new acquisitions awaken a lust for even more. Be prepared to be, literally, drawn into her world. Mud brings new meaning to the phrase, "take the stage." Expansionism and colonialism, greed and exploitation, all from a clown whose entire vocabulary consists of just four words: you, mine, nice, want.

Written for adults, appropriate for children over seven

"An exploration of human instincts at so basic a level that thought can be put aside and impulse thoroughly enjoyed . . . this performance gleams most brightly, with true mischief . . . unfettered at maximum strength."
