NIGHTBIRD was commissioned by InterAct Theatre Company with funding from National New Play Network.

 

synopsis

Join us for the world premiere of this topical, witty, and thought-provoking new play.

Chelle, an artist, has recently purchased her childhood home in Baltimore; her brother Willard is working on refurbishing it. But the home renovation takes a backseat as Willard prepares for a Juneteenth festival in the adjacent park and Chelle struggles with a recent commission: What should be built in place of a recently removed Confederate monument? An eyesore. And an opportunity.

Nightbird is recommended for ages 13 and up and contains some strong language.

Children under 5 are not permitted.
