Why is mom so annoying and why is dad so old-fashioned? Why are kids so ungrateful? Why is everyone else wrong,and why are we the only ones who seem to be doing everything right? Why is itso hard for us to understand one another?

The walking audio play “Urban Safari” is anadventure for the whole family, either everyone together or each memberseparately. You can go on four different walking routes and use yourimagination to observe people from different generations in their naturalhabitats. The play presents a run-through of the characteristics of generationsX, Y, and Z, giving you the opportunity to compare them, better understandthem, and have a little laugh at them (as well as one another).
