" ... The Cagebirds is a play for eight women.
" ... The Cagebirds is a play for eight women. Birds in a cage live, each totally absorbed in her own particular characteristics. When the Wild One is introduced into their midst by the Mistress in charge of them, she endeavours to persuade them to break out from their self-imposed dependence and imprisonment into the wider world outside - but her efforts result only in her own destruction at their hands."
