All the birds of the world declare the realm a mess and set out on a journey to seek their king, the Simorgh, a beautiful and benevolent bird of Persian myth. Their voyage through the deserts and valleys is laced with riddles and parables, deep spiritual questions and great temptations. Discover what lies at the end of their quest in this lively, light-hearted production for both children and adults, directed by international theater artist Hafiz Karmali.
Sunday’s 2pm performance will be live streamed through HowlRound. Click here to view the performance!
