Man Covets Bird

Performance Dates

From critically acclaimed Australian playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer, comes Man Covets Bird, an enveloping world of pearly prose, lustrous live music, melancholia and sunshine.

A boy wakes to find he has grown. He recognizes the stranger in the mirror, but his parents, his town do not. Outside his childhood bedroom he finds a bird that cannot fly and together the strangers embark on adventures.

​This is the story about their journey to the big city, what they find there, what they join in and what they make themselves.
