About the Play

This is a big interview. A big deal. The End. Animal conservationist Dr. Ogden has spent most of his life pandering to pandas. But lately they’ve been dropping like flies and now there’s just one panda left. Her name is Frisky and really she’s been nothing of the sort, which has always secretly suited Dr. Ogden. Motivation and crimes of passion are revealed in this interrogation of lost love, a lost world and the case of the last panda.

Fun in Washington Square Park with Frisky...
