Join dynamic duo Katy Hays and Katy McEwen on a veritable Mr. Toad's wild ride of stuff they thought up between jigsaw puzzles in the almost-very-nearly-post-pandemic, even though literally no one asked them to do it.

A night of uproarious sketches and songs, blistering insights from the 49th circle of hell that is the now times, and searing sex appeal await all those who have $20 and 60-70 minutes to kill. Come join these Twin Cities legends in what reviewers have called "...a thing that is happening" and "wait, this isn't bowling." Do you like gals in or near their late 40's with too much time on their hands? Then look no further! No One Asked for This: She Believed She Could So She Died will leave you rolling in the aisles and literally screaming for more. Literally.

Some comments from Twin Cities reviewers:

The hilarious and touching vignettes span a whole range of experiences ... [there's] something for everyone in this delightful collection of songs and stories!

Brad Richason Examiner.com

I applaud this new company
for producing local,
new work!

Janet Preus HowWasTheShow.com

The nonstop volley of improvisational riffing [produces] enough manic energy and irreverent humor to keep even the most reluctant of minds buzzing with laughter.

Brad Richason City Pages

If you're a fan of John Denver, "Country Roads" is a must-see.... These are faithful interpretations of the songs we know and love, which Dennis sings beautifully!
