Funny, heartfelt, pointed, PECKING ORDER (FEATHERS FLY) is an insightful comment on American environmentalism, the press, the power of celebrities. What makes it most poignant is that it is based on actual events. I loved directing (a reading of) this gem!
— Daedra Kaehler, director (NYC)
Drama with comedy.
4F; 2M (6F, 3M with no doubling).
Who gets to determine the pecking order in our society? What’s the story behind the true, headline-making uproar about Lola and Pale Male, the redtail hawks who were dispossessed from a swanky Fifth Avenue apartment building in New York City? The play pits two doormen at the building against the powers-that-be and Mary Tyler Moore against Paula Zahn. A songbird transforms into a young woman and an Hispanic woman transforms into a bird in this tale of haves and have-nots.
Your play was a tremendous success! I am always so impressed at how much lightness and buoyancy you can write into dramatic subject matter.
