The Care & Feeding of Small Animals by Brooke-Erin Smith
presented by Relative Theatrics & the WYO Theater
Tuesday September 28, 6:00pm
FREE to the public
The Care & Feeding of Small Animals, a play by Brooke-Erin Smith was produced by Relative Theatrics in Laramie this past February and presented as a hybrid theatre/film production. Now, Anne Mason and Relative Theatrics will bring the filmed presentation of this dystopian production to the WYO Tuesday September 28 at 6pm.
At the end of the world, two genetically engineered children (Noelia Berkes and Peter Parolin) are entrusted with the survival of the human race. Held in a restricted campus, they grapple with their extreme responsibility while testing the boundaries of what they are and are not permitted to do as saviors of the world. The New Play Exchange reviewed The Care & Feeding of Small Animals as, “a tender, funny, endearing, horrifying, and thoroughly theatrical look at the systems that bind us, the terrible prospect of freedom, and the danger of malicious education. Smith’s script conjures an entire vivid and grim world with nothing but two actors and its incredible, incredible language.”
The presentation of the filmed play will be followed by a Q&A with the director, Anne Mason and cast member Noelia Berkes.
This event is free to the public and is sponsored by the Thickman Family Foundation and Wyoming Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
