Upcoming Events

Birdy
02/27/2019 - 02/27/2019 07:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Birdy
Adapted by Naomi Wallace from the novel by William Wharton
directed by Steven Maler
February 27-March 3, 2019 and March 7-10
Carling-Sorenson Theater, Babson College

In a Philadelphia suburb before World War II, Birdy, a very smart young man, spends his time collecting pigeons and canaries for his aviary. His best friend, Al, has more earthly interests like sports and girls, but is attracted to Birdy’s eccentricity, intelligence and commitment to his birds. But after both young men return from the war, they are forced to deal with the trauma of their experiences, both physical and psychological.

Birdy examines the effects of war on young lives, a topic that is just as relevant today as it was decades ago. The story also offers hope in the possibility of powerful friendships to heal the psychological wounds of war after the physical wounds have healed.
