The Cagebirds

The Cagebirds

Six women live in a locked attic, each absorbed in her own petty interest and in placating their Master, who takes care of them. A 'Wild One' is thrust into the cage disrupting the normality, disturbing the peace. The 'Wild One' talks of breaking out of the attic to find freedom for herself and the rest of the women. The 'Wild One' troubles the other women who want to remain secure in their cage. Dark consequences prevail for the 'Wild One' when the women join together in a shattering conclusion. 

Written by David Campton; a prolific British dramatist known for his absurdist style, 'The Cagebirds' is a tragic insight into the phyche of neglect and institutionalisation.  

In this revival, The Black Sheep Collective present Campton's work using their  iconic  physical  language and dark point of view making it relevant and provocative.
