At the Conservatory Seattle
A Couple of Loons
by Candace Vance
In a surprising and uplifting way, A Couple of Loons ultimately begs us to consider the question: "Who are we becoming in contemporary America, and what are we passing on to the next generation?”
Songaa teaches Akule the ancient ways of their people, on the land of their ancestors. Ace teaches Aiden the latest interactive game, in his most recently acquired resort. They both want to do right by their sons. As their lives intersect in contemporary America, both are faced with the same question: How do I reconcile my past with my future….what will be my legacy?
STAGE DIRECTIONS: Emma Heesacker
SONGAA: Lance Valdez
AKULE: Eli Sheffield
ACE: Andrew Davies
AIDEN: Ben Hazen
