about the play

"Hippoposthumous is a young, slightly nervous, and surprisingly polymathic hippopotamus living in Colombia’s lush Magdalena River- misplaced in time and space. With their future hanging in the balance, they wallow into the spotlight to explore through rhythm and rhyme the idea of “invasive species''- from Starlings in Halifax to Giraffes in Paris. This warm hearted tragicomic musical explores the duality of being an immigrant and unwitting colonizer and follows Hippoposthumous on a poetic odyssey to discover where they’re from and what it takes to truly belong."

Join us for an unforgettable outdoor production in your community this summer (remember to dress for the weather and bring a folding chair or blanket)!
