When a shell-shocked World War II veteran enters a “complete regressive state,” taking on the mannerisms and behaviors of a bird, his childhood best friend is brought to the asylum to help remind Birdy of his humanity. Adapted from William Wharton’s 1978 novel, Birdy confronts the aftershock of war, enlists the power of memory, and confirms the power of friendship. As beautiful as it is disturbing, this is a tale of transformation that pushes the boundaries of human experience and identity. June 12, 13, 19 & 20, 2015
