Song of Extinction

Written by E. M. Lewis
Directed by Heidi Helen Davis
November 7 – December 14, 2008


Moving Arts’ Song of Extinction was the first show of the [Inside] the Ford 2008 Winter season!

Max, a musically gifted high school student, is falling off the edge of the world and his biology teacher is the only one who’s noticed. SONG OF EXTINCTION is a play about the science of life and loss, the relationships between fathers and sons, Cambodian fields, Bolivian rainforests and redemption.
