About the Play
John and his daughter Caitlyn are birders. As they scan the skies over their backyard in suburban Maryland looking for elusive birds, years go by. Relationships begin and end. Children grow up and parents age. The climate and the world change in small and vast ways. Birds of North America takes a close look at the relationship of a father and daughter over the course of a decade as they struggle to understand the parts of one another that defy understanding.
“Moench charts the intimate patterns of her characters’ thoughts and feelings with a promising elegance.” — Denver Post
“Birds of North America is the work of a very talented young playwright. There’s no melodrama, no big reveal, but the play is absorbing throughout its ninety minutes for intelligent dialogue, carefully etched characters and the believable relationship it depicts a depth charge of feeling beneath the everyday talk.” — Westword
“It will leave you thinking of your own family, in whatever dynamic that may exist.” — ALOC Media
“A universal story for anybody who has parents, and anybody who has a child.” — 5280 Magazine
“A multi-generational story that looks at how we communicate with people we love who hold different views, and how we move beyond those differences to embrace the parts of our relationships that truly matter.” — Bird Watching Daily
