An army of puppets and a magical wind create two fantastical worlds. On The Bright Side, Louisy and Syl live happily together in the safety of their treehouse until Syl ventures off to be a hero in the far away war-torn Lop Side. Alone for the first time, Louisy falls victim to the whims of tiny creatures at her doorstep. When the two sides collide, impossibilities become real, and both realize the lines between right and wrong are not as clear as they thought.
Is there a way to grow without being hurt and hurting others? How do we reconcile the call of the unknown with our commitments to those we love at home? Haunting and provocative, BIRD HOUSE is an upside down fairytale of loyalty, loss and growing up under siege.
Heidi Handelsman directs a cast of six including Ora Fruchter, Kylie Goldstein, Wendy Scharfman, Christina Shipp, Anthony Wills Jr., and Cotton Wright.
