        Cagebirds, The

Cagebirds, The

In a cage of the mind six lost souls re-run their daily routine until a new thought is introduced. The wild, chaotic nature of the newcomer challenges perceptions and requires a response from each one. What follows is a chilling insight into how fear of the new will destroy society. This young, all-female cast explores their cage through physical theatre and imagination embracing the 'absurd' nature of Campton's play, showing how he has created an allegory of societies the world over and displaying the dangers of demanding freedom.
