Song of Extinction follows the struggles of Max, a musically gifted high school student whose life is spinning out of control, and a Cambodian biology teach who reaches out to him. Lewis’ vast play with music takes the audience on a journey from a Portland classroom to the fields of Cambodia, from a hospital room to the Bolivian rainforest. The play is a powerful meditation on the science of life and loss.
