In the lounge Ants Go Marching Rat King Theatre
About This Show
The Ants Go Marching is a slice of late summer evening where two women – one newly a mother and the other newly heart broken – struggle to connect from their disparate viewpoints. As conversation heats up and communication breaks down, Edith recounts a fairy tale and Edie expresses herself through movement.
