A short dystopian play
by Rebecca Ryland
3F / 1 M
Approximate Playing Time: 20 minutes

When the human population explodes, who survives cage free? As the population grew, a number of solutions were employed to address the growing housing crisis. By 2050 Earth reached its maximum sustainable population of 10 billion people. By that time, human warehouses − buildings with artificial light full of cages like those once used in factory farming − were implemented to address the housing crises, manage food and water distributions and control methane gas. As the Cage Free population tried more and more radical solutions to address the problem, something happened. One morning, mysteriously, the locks on the doors to the cages released, leaving the inhabitants to determine what to do next as their food supplies vanished and water spouts slowed to a drip. Only four remained in their cage. Is the apocalypse inside the cage… or outside in the unknown? $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $20 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
