War begins with mommy. A delicate tale told by idiots.

Mater Facit (Mah-ter Fah-ket) is an absurd look at motherhood, nationalism, sex, sacrifice and rabbits. This physical theatre tale explores the expectations of women and mothers as providers of the first need of every society throughout history to engage in war – humans.

We began our rehearsal process with a two-day workshop with the award-winning Minneapolis-based physical theatre artist, Jon Ferguson ( Jon directed our popular 2006 Cincy Fringe entry, godsplay:, and we look forward to incorporating his unique way of working into our process.

Often outlandish, sometimes profound, always unpredictable, Cincinnati-based Performance Gallery is a collaborative performance environment existing to produce and promote challenging works of theatre. Founded in 2002, they are a nomadic company and have produced a varying amount of works per year including original plays, revamped classics and nine widely different original offerings at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. They busted out of Cincinnati to perform their award-winning ’08 fringe piece, fricative at the 2011 Indianapolis Fringe and the 2012 Atlanta Fringe.
