A Barn Play at Fort Washington Collegiate Church

A Barn Play

Northern Manhattan's UP Theater Company presents a different kind of animal farm in the world premiere of Lizzie Donahue's "A Barn Play". This timely and darkly comic fable explores the power of creating art amidst oppression when a cast of farm animals rehearses their show. Directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby. Owl attempts to rehearse his new play with a lively and opinionated ensemble of farm animals: Chicken, Pig, Dog, Cow, Sheep, and Cat. Tensions flare when a crisis befalls the animals and the ensemble rejects Owl's arty attempt for one of their own devising - one that sheds light on our own relationships with animals, children, and art. This provocative dark comedy asks, "At a time of crisis, who will stand up and be the pig, and who will be the owl"? Suggested ages: 12+ Run Time: 70 mins.
