The Play:  An Almanac for Farmers and Lovers in Mexico by Kate Tarker, Directed by Eden Tomich

When Flora’s fiancée turns into a hummingbird, she knows she’s got to do something drastic to get him back. Flora and her friends fight to keep her planned marriage alive, while confronted with a local judge with mercurial office hours; a maid of honor with a wandering soul; and a groom whose humanity has been called into question. An Almanac for Farmers and Lovers in Mexico is a magically lyrical comedy looking at love, friendship, and commitment.
