A man.  The moon.  A most peculiar love story.

WONDERHEADS present a love story that whisks a man to the moon and back!  Donning their signature oversized masks and propelled by questions of amorous proportions, the WONDERHEADS step into the life of a lonely man and look for love.  Francis, who is plagued by isolation and tickled by whispers of childhood imagination, has hit rock bottom and discovers that he has nowhere to go but up.  And up.  And up!  But will plucking the moon from the sky bring him the love he is searching for?

“I’d give it more than five stars – I’d give it the moon.”

“Genius both in concept and execution doesn’t begin to describe what Braidwood and Phoenix accomplish.”
– Calgary Sun

“It’s beautiful, heart-wrenching and incredibly moving – storytelling at its finest and simplest.”
– Community News Commons

“A magnificent mix of puppetry, mime, soundscape and mask-work that gives the life of a poor urban schlemiel such dignity and pathos, you can’t help but be moved, first to laughter, then to tears.”
– Edmonton Journal

“If Pixar ever decides to go into the theatre business, they better call Wonderheads first.”
– Calgary Herald
