The Pigeon Boys tells the story of the forgotten “pigeoneers” of World War II and explores the lives of three soldiers -- an American, a Brit, and a German. As the boys face the harsh realities of war and one life-or-death mission, they reveal the mysteries of the 50,000 pigeons used to save the lives of soldiers and airmen. Their intertwined stories of love, hope and fear look at the struggles of becoming a man. The Pigeon Boys was last seen in the 2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival where it was presented as a developmental reading.
