Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

The first reading of a new play by Ron Hutchinson (Tango Diaries / Lookin' for Elvis)

                    Download Flyer from here.

   In 1851 one hundred and fifty London house sparrows were captured and brought to New York. Against all odds, sixteen of them managed to survive the voyage, a ferocious first winter, and the attacks of local wildlife who resented these new immigrants.

       This play and its music celebrate the sparrows' adaptation to the New World -- an adaptation so successful that these founding families now have over two hundred million direct descendants.

       This epic tale of a daughter who finds her pride will be performed by the sparrows themselves.

       Directed by James Shearwood, the cast includes returning and well-known actors Rich O'Brien, Pamela Jayne Morgan, Quinn Vogt-Welch, Harry WallerKirsty Woodward, James Shearwood, Kevin O'Brien, Maia Guest and musicians Greg Doyle and Wendy Matthews, aka The EduKated Fleas.

Stage Manager: Carrie Ford.

Ron Hutchinson's connection to AotL began with Clinging to the Iceberg, continued with Lookin' for Trouble, and then last April's Tango Diaries.
