Seeking Flight

By Joan Broadman

Directed by Malissa Lamont and Heather Renken

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.
