Pigeons - Camden Fringe 2019
Hen and Chickens
Two strangers. One bench. One phone. One conversation. Two confessions.Is communication really improving in the 21st Century? The conversations we have with strangers can be more truthful than the ones we have with our loved ones.Under the watchful gaze of a pair of amorous pigeons, a park bench proves an unlikely venue for a pivotal meeting of minds between an elderly lady and a young man struggling with relationship issues and embracing his true self. Divided by a brace of generations and life choices, the random passing strangers nonetheless bridge the technological and misconceived divide and prosper from each other's wisdom, proving that good ol' fashioned face to face conversation and social media need not be antagonists, and that we're never too old or young to learn from each other about what it is to be human.
