A young woman, abandoned at birth, finds the woman she believes to be her birth mother. What should be a reunion or reconciliation of sorts, turns into a combination of mutual interrogation, the absurdity of potential paternal candidates, with back stories straight out of an urban, modern day "Alice in Wonderland". Abandonment is the theme, but the rantings and ravings regarding everything from pop culture to politics, takes this moment and delivers a roller coaster ride, filled with everything from rage to contrition. Along the way, we meet an array of bizarre paternal candidates, as well as a young Actress, who stumbles into this world, eager to fill any void or role necessary. Mothers & Daughters It doesnt get any easier, when they actually meet.

"Sam Henry Kass has written a bold new play and his friend Ronnie Marmo has directed it for its World Premiere in Los Angeles. A story of loss and longing, the play features hilarious dialogue, absurd plot twists, and superb acting. It might be classified as “a poignant comedy.”"

"I love the way Sam Henry Kass writes. He is brutal and poetic and bold, but the pain is always laced with love…which is what makes it real. I highly recommend “A Flock of Macaws” at Theatre 68. Ronnie Marmo directs with quiet deftness and fearless abandon, believing in the words and the power of his actors. Bravo!!"

"The play deals not with her quest, but what happens when she finds the very strange woman Daughter insists is in fact her Mother (Deborah Geffner) who likewise speaks truth with every word out of her mouth--even when she's lying or deluded or trying not to say anything at all. No small feat! But wonderful to behold."
