Tale of a West Texas Marsupial Girl
One day, somewhere in West Texas, a girl is born. She’s got beautiful toes, a beautiful nose, all her tiny fingers and all her tiny toes but, holy puppy on a peach tree, she is something else! Something a bit like a kangaroo!! This girl is about 95% girl and about 5% marsupial. In other words, she’s got a pouch. It might seem that a built in pocket would come in handy, but it doesn’t always work that way.

“D’Amour is a complex, engaging writer known for her experimental works. Marsupial Girl…is her foray into the world of children’s theater. Its plot, about differences large and small, resonates.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
