Some beings just pop right out of the egg and it is clear – they are born to be a star.
But super-stardom itself can take some getting used to.
Sure, there are the personally-crafted “hand-fed” delicacies and the posh yet super-secure accommodations and the never-ending stream of five-feather reviews to enjoy every day.
All is fun and festivities until you wake up one day to discover an….imposter.
Love & Feathers is proud to present famous and feathery super star Pearl Cutts in his latest one-act play:
“Cockatiel Investigates an Imposter”
With a feature of this nature, you have to be prepared for it – a slew of imposters dressed up in their favorite two-toned color scheme, all standing in line while elbowing one another for more room to snap their “selfies.”
Meanwhile, the eager costumed imposters’ addition of fake wing and tail feathers isn’t doing anyone any favors. Every time one of them turns around, inevitably they whack the theatergoer just in front or behind them with their accessories.
Eventually, the whole situation devolves into fisticuffs, with fake feathers flying everywhere and small rectangular flashing devices documenting the whole debacle for posterity (thank goodness).
Only the announcement of the imminent box office opening finally calms the melee.
As the mysterious large featherless being known only as “Mom” anxiously herds her charges (notice the plural) offstage, the audience turns to one another in total consternation.
There was a “mini Pearl” audition? And they missed it?
Soon, fresh skirmishes break out as the costumed fans commence to arguing with one another over who would have had the best chance of playing “mini Pearl” – based on their totally authentic costumes, of course.
Suffice it to say theater security soon finds they have their hands full….of feathers.
