The Cagebirds

by David Campton
David Campton’s THE CAGEBIRDS is a one act comedy drama about six birds, each with their own particular song – songs of beauty, of gossip, of gloom. They are content to be kept in a cage by the Master, who keeps them fed, watered and safe from the outside world.

But then the Master introduces a new bird to the cage. She is the Wild One and her song is one of rebellion. She shatters the illusions of her cage companions and bids them rise against their cage and all other cages.

Produced in collaboration with Leicester Drama Society, THE CAGEBIRDS is a witty and insightful examination of the prisons we build for ourselves and our reactions to radical change.
