What has happened to the little brown bats? To the spotted tree frog? What will happen to Homo sapiens? A Play for the Living in a Time of Extinction is an afternoon of interactive, interspecies storytelling. It asks--through story, song, and movement--how to be a human in an era of man-made extinction. Part of New York Theatre Workshop's 28th annual summer residency at Dartmouth.
