Missing: the fantastical and true story of my father's disappearance...
Created and performed by Jessica Ferris, directed by David Ford, with original music by Mark Orton of Tin Hat.

This smartly-constructed dark comedy is a mix of autobiography, physical theater, and social commentary.

The heart of the show is Ferris's search for the truth about her father, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances when she was two years old. She portrays the many members of her family who tell their versions of the story of his disappearance. Chief among her guides is her grandmother Sally, a righteous and sassy woman from a small Texas town.

Throughout the piece, Ferris deftly transforms everyday objects (a folding chair, a metal toolbox, a sheet) into extra-daily entities and beings.

Under scrutiny in the show are gender roles in nuclear family structure, the influence of con artists in our culture, and the nature of deceit. According to one audience reviewer, "She makes reference to huge charged systems, and she handles them so casually, but with such calculation."

Says another audience reviewer, "It's hilarious to the point of tears, touching, and close to the bone. How can she make me laugh till I cry telling such a dark story?"
