"Come celebrate spring, nature, abundance, love, fertility, birth, sex, and fire with some newly baptized neo-pagans. Watch these earth-based spirituals give thanks to the great Goddess(s) with ritual: wild, reverent, loud, and sexually loaded.
Who are these Mother Moth People ring leaders?... These well-intentioned, bright eyed, self-educated - and somewhat misguided - spiritual leaders? Faking it to make it right in front of your very eyes."
Received an honorable mention for Best Ensemble for Phindie's 2014/15 Critics’ Awards: The best in Philadelphia theater!
