The Pigeon Factory

Oh!Scare Wilde Productions

A new one-man show that explores ideas of work, family, and finding purpose in a broken society through the lens of absurdity, pathos, and pigeons.

Walden has a pretty good life – happily married to his mannequin wife, he works his pigeon children into the ground so that he may feast upon their eggs for sustenance. Walden is doing everything he’s supposed to do – so why does he feel so empty? Can his fantasies about his pigeons sustain him? Or must he do the hard thing, and face up to a great hurt done to him in the past?

Age suitability: 15+
