New York City
Birder follows middle-aged accountant Roger, who, upon discovering a house finch nesting outside his home in Los Feliz, finds himself forced to question his most basic assumptions about what it means to be a father, husband, and breadwinner. But do his avian explorations represent a deep search for meaning, or just a city-dweller’s mid-life crisis? This funny, moving world premiere by Jerome Fellow and award-winning playwright Julie Marie Myatt explores the human need for silence, as Roger finds both terror and solace in Los Angeles’ unique urban ecology. Birder was Commissioned and Developed by Center Theatre Group.
