๐ŸŒŸPlease Respect Our Privacy as we Bury Our Cat at the Waterpark

A comedy hour co-written and performed with collaborator Masha Breeze

Chamomile and Carol are amateur taxidermists bonded by their passion for waterparks, bad girls, and letting it all hang out. Nasty, Chamomileโ€™s cat, and John Travolta, Carolโ€™s sadistic ex husband, have both died. Now the two women must find perfect resting places for the ashes of their loved (and hated) ones. Armed with the urns and a sense of adventure, Carol and Chamomile spend the day at their favorite place, The Waterpark, from which point their quest takes a mystical turn.ย ย
