Pecky is a parrot trapped in a cage with the very annoying Pickles, who keeps repeating everything Pecky says. Pickles is driving Pecky crazy, but Pecky is also disturbed that she herself can't seem to stop repeating mindless phrases she's picked up along the way. They're driving each other to acts of desperation. Polly want a cracker? Polly want a cracker? One of eleven short animal plays by Don Nigro.
