The Saturday, April 13 at 8 pm and Sunday, April 14 at 2 pm performances are sold out. In The Birds, acclaimed Indigenous playwright Yvette Nolan has potently adapted Aristophanes’ classic comedy that follows two humans seeking freedom and a better way of life as they travel to the fabled land of birds. Soon they begin to recreate this newfound paradise in their image on Turtle Island, with no regard for the land's original occupants. Nolan’s adaptation examines the Indigenous / settler relationship and respect for the land with insightful wit and lasting resonance. The guest director is award-winning director, Reneltta Arluk. Featuring students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance. Contains gun violence.

Presented by arrangement with Playwrights Guild of Canada.
