tengoJuly 15-17, 2016, And Then Came Tango, by Emily Freeman

Carol Welter, also a UUCA congregant, will direct And Then Came Tango, a play based on the story of Roy and Silo, a same sex male pair of chinstrap penguins in the Central Park Zoo, who together hatched and raised a chick named Tango.  The work has been performed at the New York Fringe Festival (2014) and has also been at the center of controversy (akin to that around the book And Tango Makes Three) when scheduled for performances in schools in Austin, Texas.
