Seeking Flight

Written by Joan Broadman, directed by Malissa Lamont and Heather Renken
October 19th-November 10th

Confined to a lab, Monty and Enzi are African gray parrots being used in experiments that test their ability to speak English and form concepts. Monty was born in captivity, but Enzi once lived free, in the Congolese rainforest. Seeking the freedom that would allow them to fulfill their parrot nature, Enzi urges Monty to join him in rebellion. A whimsical play with song and poetry, Broadman’s delightful comedy will enchant while exploring animal rights and how we learn.
