Have you ever noticed how unusually loud and chatty birds are? Or ever wondered what they might say if they could speak? Meet Arthur J. Peabody, a very well spoken bird who befriends a young lady and regales her with stories of his past, his travels and the people he has met. "Arthur J. Peabody" is set in the late 1800’s and is a lovely play filled with colourful characters, costume, stop motion, and special effects that bring the digital stage to life. There is even a surprise twist thrown in. But shhh, don’t tell anyone.
