  • Overview
    In this allegorical play six birds live in a cage, each totally absorbed in her own particular characteristics. When the Wild One is introduced into their midst by their Mistress, she endeavours to persuade them to break out from their self-imposed dependence and imprisonment into the wider world outside — but her efforts result only in her own destruction at their hands.
