The award-winning Monkey Baa team brings to the stage a new imagining of the classic Australian books by Sheena Rowles and Rod Clement. 

A heartfelt, clever and funny new tale for the family to enjoy.

Edward is bored with his lot. Being the only emu at the zoo has left him feeling glum and under the impression that the grass is greener in everyone else’s enclosure. Maybe being a seal or a lion, or a snake might be a better option in life for a lonely bird? Convinced that the other creatures are more popular, Edward breaks ranks and goes to find the fun and along the way, finds Edwina! We follow the emus as they hilariously navigate their own feathered existential crises, seeking to find their place in the world. Meanwhile, unaware of the birds’ internal worlds, their human keepers are in hot pursuit to restore order to the zoo. the emus’ journey of hijinx and tenderness leads them to discover that the best thing you can be is …. you!
