zAmya* Theater Project presents A Prairie Homeless Companion on KFAI!

 

Original Music! Bad Jokes! Real Stories! Tune in Monday, November 22nd at 1pm for the encore presentation of A Prairie Homeless Companion by Josef Evans and the zAmya* Theater Project!

A Prairie Homeless Companion is modeled after the well-known radio show A Prairie Home Companion. With music, bad jokes, and real stories, in zAmya’s version, a theater company from the city presents a show with a quaint depiction of small-town life in Miserable Falls, Minnesota. But the actors find a very different reality than the community they’ve been spoofing. Residents of the town take over the show and tell more realistic stories.
