Oakland, California-- World Premiere of The Conference of the Birds, a new play by Sholeh Wolpe, directed by Giulio Perrone. Ubuntu Theater Project, Oakland, California.
In a Kingdom with no ruler, ten thousand birds set out to find a King none have ever seen. Led by the wise Hoope, the birds journey through dangers, distractions and difficulties, their Conference growing smaller each day.
Adapted from the celebrated Sufi poem, this lyrical parable is a timeless reflection on the search for meaning on a journey toward something larger than ourselves.
