A Mouthful of Birds
By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Brendan Quinn (COL ’14)
Produced by Sarah Konig (COL ’16)
Advised by Professor Maya E. Roth
Modernity and myth seduce each other in this electrifying work from Caryl Churchill - Far Away, Top Girls, Cloud Nine - widely regarded as one of the greatest living playwrights. Loosely based on Euripides’ The Bacchae this bold collage of vignettes depicts a Dionysian clash of seven urbanites on the verge of violent transformation. Incorporating highly physical movement, this ensemble work weaves tales of possession, lust, and madness into a swirling blend of contemporary and ancient forces, giving flesh to the uncomfortable notion that sometimes we need to fall apart in order to come back together again.
