Poached Eggs: A Hoo Hoo Hooooo Dunnit

Presented by Ottawa School of Theatre

By Bruce Deachman and Joanna Henry

When a pair of nearly hatched whooping crane eggs goes missing from the River Heights Zoological Garden, there’s no shortage of suspects with motives for committing the fowl deed, including Flick, a baseball bat-wielding badger, and the zoo’s newest arrival, Coco, a venomous cobra. Can hard-boiled detective Starnes, a great horned owl with secrets of his own, solve the case before both the trail and the endangered eggs grow cold? Zebras and Bears and Elephants, Oh My!

Find out in this film-noir styled Hoo-Hoo-Hooooo-Dunnit. Suitable for ages 4+, excellent family entertainment.
