Glass Apple Theatre presents The Shadows of Birds. A world premiere by Richard James Zieman & Joel Z. Cornfield
Just out of rehab, NICOLE tries to reconcile with her mother BARBARA, on the occasion of Barbara's retirement. Years of estrangement, regret and acrimony complicate their tempestuous relationship, and the sudden death of Nicole's rehab counselor threatens to undo all the progress she's made. Set in the present day.
