Birdie Birdie

  • Synopsis

    Birdie Birdie is a study of what it means to be human. Set in an enclosed room, the characters, seemingly trapped, must face up to their particular human condition. The questions they ask themselves and each other as well as theier absurd funny situation reflect on the comedy of life.
