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.

Quotes & Highlights
- Watch a short preview video of the show.
- "This 'buddy' musical has genuine warmth and charm ... Director Christine Karki smartly resists the temptation to play these scenes with tears and puppy-dog looks ... Meerdink and Hansen treat their characters with kindness and discovery ... seeing them give a genuine and unstinting account of two old friends who recognize the impact they've had on each other was so worth the 90-minute investment." --Star Tribune
- "The bonds of friendship run throughout MMT's engaging and moving production. Kevin Hansen and Steven Meerdink completely inhabit their characters ... both bring plenty of shades to characters that could have remained stock. The show embraces what brought them together and spins that into a universal tale." --City Pages
- "Kevin Hansen and Steven Meerdink are a great pairing ... playing their roles as children and as adults with perfect ease, capturing the humor and heartbreak that comes with any long-term relationship. The tight-knit friendship at the heart of this show is palpable and heartfelt. A simple and moving story." --Twin Cities Metro

Two boys. Friends forever. One moves on and the other stays behind. When time tests the bonds of their friendship, only their stories are left to keep them together. A richly melodic musical, The Story of My Life is a soaring tribute to the power of friendship and the people who change our lives forever.
