Dramaturgy by Alex Smith

Comprised of a series of vignettes, this play with music observes and explores the tiny, teeming with life and “life lessons” of the insect world.  Rich with scientific fun facts, folklore and legend, the story of BUGS is told by musician/actors.

The cast of characters embody ancient wisdom in this imaginative romp through the science, socialization and the spiritual significance of insects. It explores the interconnectedness and interdependence of all life forms, cause and effects of actions, all the while shedding light on early socialization skills.
