Cagebirds $10.99

0 Male 8 Female

Set in a bird-cage, each of the birds is totally absorbed in her own particular characteristics

A "room" and a "cage" and "people" and "captive birds" all become confused until a dramatic climax in which we suddenly see reality

Siix women/birds live in a locked room, each absorbed in their own petty interest and in placating the "Mistress" who takes care of them

But then the Mistress introduces the Wild One who talks of breaking out of the room, tempting them to fly for freedom

She deeply disturbs those who prefer to remain secure in their cage

And so they all join against her in a shattering conclusion

An unforgettable play that offers eight actresses an unusual opportunity to explore unusual and challenging roles
