Animal Empire

In this one-act digital musical, animals—sick of years of mistreatment and because a speeding sheriff accidentally kills a deer on a highway—take up arms against humans. Our pet cats claw us to death, our dogs deafen us with non-stop barking. The locusts destroy our crops, the sparrows spread diseases, the wild animals invade the cities… When the dust clears, will there be any humans left?
