CYCLIST ATTACKED BY MOUNTAIN LION
By Resident Playwright ROBERT KOON
Directed by KEVIN CHRISTOPHER FOX
On his morning bike ride on a local trail, Jerry finds a sign warning of a local sighting of a mountain lion. He successfully avoids an encounter with the predator, but as his day unfolds the presence of wildlife in the city becomes more and more pronounced…and more and more suspicious. Are the animals launching an attack on the humans who are annexing their territory, or are the humans themselves de-evolving—sliding back into their selfish, animal nature?
