The Headwaters Theatre

Two strangers. One bus stop. Infinite destinations.
Winston, a man of particular particularities, is expecting nothing other than a perfectly normal day. The appearance of eleven year old Penny at his bus stop is the first thing to upset his routine, but what he doesn’t realize is that today, Penny would be the least of his worries.
The universe has conspired to send these strangers on a fantastical journey through time and space, forcing them to confront their fears head-on as they struggle to find their way home. But will they listen to their cosmic wake up call?
The Middle of Everywhere is performed in full-face mask, a wordless form which audiences have described as watching ‘live-action Pixar.’ WONDERHEADS have been touring their full-face mask shows around the continent since 2009 and the are thrilled to present the world premiere of their newest show, The Middle of Everywhere, right here in Portland.
Recommended for a general audience.
Running time: 1 hour, no intermission.
