We are thrilled to announce that the Los Angeles premiere production of "Birds of North America" will land on the Odyssey stage this autumn. The play takes a close look at the relationship of a father and daughter over the course of a decade as they struggle to understand more about themselves, each other and the changing world around them. John and his daughter Caitlyn are birders and as years go by they scan the skies over their backyard in suburban Maryland. Caitlyn grows up and her father ages. The climate and the world change in small and vast ways. Birds of North America is a moving lyrical and funny play that explores the tenuous bonds that join and separate us. Written by Anna Ouyang Moench and directed by Peter Richards.
