It Takes a Village
Matthew Van Gessel and Noam Shapiro team up for It Takes A Village, a hilarious solo clown show on national themes. When Bozo, a hapless clown, discovers an abandoned baby, he's tasked with teaching her the difference between right and wrong. But Bozo can't do it alone! He'll need the audience's help as he navigates between good and bad role models. As he'll discover, the line between right and wrong isn't always so clear, and nice guys sometimes finish last. Will we find a way to come together for the sake of the child, or will we tear this baby apart?

Takes A Village runs approximately 70 minutes.
