"The Cagebirds" by David Campton,
Penny Rettig - Mirror Eyed Gazer, tame hen bird
Marieluise Maiwald - Constant Twitting, tame hen bird
Christine Comerci - Great Guzzler, tame hen bird
Joy Scherer - Tong-Tonged Gossip, tame hen bird
Diana Zuger - Mistress, human
Stephanie Nemeth-Parker - Wild one, a vibrant young hen bird
Six tame “birds” are kept in a cage by their Mistress. Each is living in her own world, totally absorbed in her own character. When the “Wild One” is thrown into the cage, she ruffles feathers by stirring up ideas and memories. She tries to convince the others that freedom is more important than security. But the self-imposed walls they have built around themselves are much harder to break down than any external barriers could be. Disaster is inevitable.
"Babysitting Calvin" by John H Newmeir,
Calvin, a ten month old baby, can still remember his previous life when he was happily married to Laura, despite the womanising attentions of his friend Bob. Calvin will lose his blissful memories when he reaches his first birthday - or speaks - so nothing will make him talk. His single parent Mum is persuaded to go out for the evening with Donna, her sexy friend and the baby sitter she finds is none other than Laura. She is bringing along lecherous Bob! Calvin sets about thwarting Bob's desires using every trick known to babies. Can he stop Bob........ without saying a word?
