Animal Facts

Two moose have locked antlers in battle and have a deep conversation while they are stuck together.  A killer whale in captivity dreams he is back in the ocean with his mother.  Rats in a maze have to remember their way back to the cheese.  Elephants gather for a meeting of matriarchs to discuss possible dangers to their herd.  A flock of wild geese needs a new leader. 

Eight short plays–each about a different animal species–can be presented together or separately by school and community groups.  All present themes relevant to humans and animals–cooperation, climate change, immigration, incarceration, family life, extinction. 

Each of the short plays can be acquired separately for the student competition price* or purchased as a whole production for $70.
