“Cows that type? Hens on strike? Who ever heard of such a thing!” Farmer Brown cries. When his granddaughter comes for a
visit, Farmer Brown declares the farm a “tech-free zone.” He confiscates her laptop because of the shivering cows that use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. “No way,” replies Farmer Brown. “No blankets!” So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals’ demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" new musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin. www.theatreworksusa.org
