MAN COVETS BIRD

by Finegan Kruckemeyer

A boy wakes one day and finds he is a man. He can recognise the stranger in the mirror, but his parents, his town, they cannot. He finds a bird that cannot fly, and together they take off. In a city they come across, they begin to build a nest, a nest that will hold a man and a bird. But a city is a busy place and nest-building is a big job, and soon there are other things to do. Soon there are only other things to do. One day a man realises... he is ready to fly.

Commissioned by Slingsby and premiered 2010 at the Adelaide Festival directed Andy Packer.

"The magic which is Man Covets Bird cannot possibly be described in writing... If more theatre were like this, the world would be a magical place indeed." - Australian Stage
