Kate, a marketing executive and Mia, her taxidermist spouse, host a cocktail party conceived out of jealousy. When strangers and family mix, hilarity and horror ensue. A contemporary drawing-room farce by acclaimed playwright Sonja Mills, The Bird is a frank examination of marriage, capitalism and other affairs. The Bird dares to ask some difficult questions to which we may not want to hear the answers. It is an unrelentingly funny, truthful and important political play. (Show Facebook Event)
