Aparna N' Jo
Aparna N' Jo
Aparna and Jo are many things to many people: comedians, scarecrows, junior chefs, crayons. Suffice it to say they know what it's like to be an outsider looking in. Join them as they navigate their way through a show with the help of their foolish friends who agreed to help them. Their only promise is they will delight and confuse you, not in that order. Actually, no promises. Scarecrows have enough on their plate as is.
