“In A Bird’s Eye”
Most if not all Gloucester residents are well acquainted with the heated local debate about the future of The Fort and the old Bird’s Eye building. This was the inspiration for the musical “In A Bird’s Eye”, which was given a reading/singing at the Tragabigzanda Political Theatre Festival. It follows a family through their discussions at their annual 4th of July reunion, where tradition and change collide in a funny and balanced portrayal of people on of both sides of the debate (and those who chose to stay in between).
