When you are pint-sized super spy .007, one thing you must never do is blow your cover.
Let’s say your cover identity is as world-renowned actor Pearl Cutts, and one evening you get to craving the crunch of a tasty millet sprig – and you don’t feel like sharing.
You sneak out to have a nip, but you must use all your stealth to evade the fans, the paparazzi, and (most of all) your large featherless super spy assistant, who goes by code name “Mom.”
What happens next is the subject of Love & Feathers’ latest one-avian play – starring none other than Pearl Cutts:
(There are no curtains. The stage lighting slowly comes up to reveal the shadowy outline of a fresh sprig of crunchy millet. The star sneaks up on it with “maximum stealth.”)
(At the precise moment when the star’s small grey form disappears completely into the shadows, another much larger shadow looms on the scene. The audience can only assume this is “Mom,” come in search of her errant VIP client.)
