WARNING: This tale of two penguins may offend

Birds of a Feather recounts the controversial story of Roy and Silo, two Central Park Zoo penguins who partner, adopt an egg, and hatch and raise a chick together

Please note, Roy and Silo are no strangers to the spotlight ...

In 2005, these two penguins were the subject of the children's book And Tango Makes Three by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson

The sexuality of the penguin parents therein came under national scrutiny and the book was (temporarily) pulled from school bookshelves in Loudoun County and soon became one of the most banned books in the US


"There's something satisfyingly poetic about the way the play's themes reverberate and refract. And it's refreshing to encounter a dramatist, and a theater, willing to take wing with such an adventurous approach to the culture wars" ~ The Washington Post
