A new play by Ron Hutchinson (Tango Diaries / Lookin’ for Elvis)
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 with live music celebrates their adaptation to the New World — an adaptation so successful that these founding families now have over two hundred million direct descendants.
The epic tale will be performed by the sparrows themselves.
