New play BIRDS OF A FEATHER: A COMEDY ABOUT DE-EXTINCTION has been selected from national submissions for a staged reading by Turn to Flesh Theatre (NYC) in summer 2016. 

BIRDS OF A FEATHER is a madcap romp about a time-travelling geneticist who journeys a century into the past to New York City, circa 1912. His mission? To save the passenger pigeon. The play wrestles, in a screwball comedy kind of way (think “Bringing Up Baby” meets “Doctor Who”) with the intersection of two unlikely bedfellows: the early conservation movement and the New Woman/suffragist struggle. Add to the mayhem social satire, slapstick humor, and an eccentric family of radical women and the result is a comedic love story that tickles our funny bone while provoking more serious reflection on the nature of progress and the world’s disappearing species.

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
