The creators of Fringe Festival award-winning hits Red Resurrected and Ballad of the Pale Fisherman return with an innovative new imagining of the Cinderella story. Using their signature style of physical storytelling, this talented ensemble breathes fresh life into the arid landscape of the Dust Bowl. Inspired by economic hardships past and present, and scored by old American spirituals and new compositions on slide guitar, Transatlantic Love Affair's Ash Land weaves a compelling story of love and self, lost and found.

THE BEST! I've been to 17 plays since August, and this is the best!
This actor was SO good--you can totally believe he is a real bat boy!
There are scenes that aren't appropriate for children, but they are totally hilarious!
This is a Must-See!
Good music with great lines,too.
