Serpents of Bienville is excited to present to you
Red Bird, a play with music
written and performed by Brian Kennedy

Kennedy explains:

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? Reviewed as “a Gothic tale for the 21st century... brilliantly dark... riveting,” (https://caughtintheactnh.blogspot.com/2015/05/red-bird-gothic-tale-for-21st-century.html) Red Bird 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. “Part short story, part poetry in motion, part rock opera; the sum of the whole is like stepping inside an other-worldly graphic novel.”(http://manchesterinklink.com/amoskeag-studio-brian-booths-red-bird-will-take-you-to-someplace-other-worldly/)

About Brian Kennedy:

From New Hampshire’s haunted north, Coös County, in the shadow of the White Mountains, Brian Kennedy spent his youth in a long and lonely list of seemingly random occupations – as a census taker, a post-hole digger, a dishwasher, a student, a landscaper, a stagehand, a bartender, a carpenter’s assistant, a materials technician, a playwright, a stockroom clerk, a publicity man, a naturalist, an actor, a singer, a bibliographer, a guitar player, a philosophy teacher, and once even as an extra on Japanese television. Now, after a two year sabbatical in south Alabama, he’s off to Guthrie, Oklahoma to start a circus - Cathedral Circus - a pilgrim ensemble conjuring play-as-work and work-as-play for the prophetic renewal of American culture.
