Moving Arts is proud to announce the WORLD PREMIERE of E.M. Lewis’ SONG of EXTINCTION
November 7 – December 14, 2008 To purchase tickets CLICK HERE or call (323) GO 1-FORD (461-3673) 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.
Max is going to fail Biology if he doesn’t complete a 20-page paper on extinction by 2pm on Tuesday but his mother is dying of cancer, and school is the last thing on his mind. His father, a biologist obsessed with saving a rare, threatened Bolivian insect, is incapable of dealing with his wife’s impending death, or his son’s distress. Max’s biology teacher, Khim Phan, tries to figure out why Max is failing the class. Helping Max, however, pushes Khim into a magical journey of his own from the Cambodian fields of his youth into the undiscovered country beyond.
