About the show

In Clubbed Thumb's world premiere three women have ambitions (some of a spiritual nature), a few secrets, and some unfinished business. Whose vision, for the land uncultivated, will prevail? More…

Thalia wants to build a farmhouse in the middle of the great big city. Mabel is on a quest to become its first female preacher (although her rampant sexual thoughts are having a real impact on her sermonizing). And little Peanut Brittle is digging around in the past. It is only 20 years into the new century, and these ladies are going a bit wild.
