Patrick Brien,


The Gestalt Theatre Project presents the West Coast Premiere of Justin Maxwell's "An Outopia for Pigeons." The year is 1914. Martha Washington, the world's last passenger pigeon, is building an outopia. It is what she describes as a non-place. She believes that her species will be safe in a place that does not exist. Martha isn't aware that she is already the last of her kind. Touching and poignant, the play is also a hilarious exercise in the absurd. Joining Martha is a sperm whale named Charles Bronson, a gourmand who is 7/8 omniscient, and Cotton Mather, a puritan minister who has traveled across three centuries in search of Martha.

Please note that due to language and subject matter, discretion is advised.

Cost: Varies
