a play with music
written and performed by Brian Booth
What if an artist's muse was neither myth nor metaphor? What if their relationship was truly face to face? And if a muse ever deigned to offer inspiration, what would she demand in return? In Red Bird, alone onstage with his guitar, Brian Booth blends song and monologue into a strange and fascinating tale - that of a lonely man, in some future America overcome by calamity, discovering solace in the company of an enigmatic stranger who may be something more than human. Parental discretion advised.
