Additional Info

Three cows, Bessie, Opal and Eloise, have been put in a truck and brought to a big, strange place with a lot of other cows. They're not quite sure where they are or what's happened to the barn, and Bessie has a lot of really disturbing questions about what's going on, but the others tell her not to worry, everything is going to be just fine, and look, the line is moving. A very dark little parable. One of eleven short animal plays in Animal Tales.
