News   World Premiere of Marks' Bird House to Begin NYC Run July 10 Kate Marks' Bird House, a wartime coming-of-age tale, will play a limited engagement Off-Off Broadway at Theater 3 beginning July 10.

The KNF Co (Love, Incorporated) presents the world premiere, which will be directed by Heidi Handelsman and will play a three-week engagement through July 26.

Makus (lighting design), Alex Koch (video/projection design), Jessica Pabst (costume design) and Quentin Chiappetta (original music/sound design).

Press notes for Bird House read: "An army of puppets and a magical wind create two fantastical worlds. On The Bright Side, Louisy and Syl live happily together in the safety of their treehouse until Syl ventures off to be a hero in the far away war-torn Lop Side. Alone for the first time, Louisy falls victim to the whims of tiny creatures at her doorstep. When the two sides collide, impossibilities become real, and both realize the lines between right and wrong are not as clear as they thought."

Marks' plays include A Chicken Goes to Broadway, Flyers and Other Tales, Ark, I-95 South and The Patriots. She has penned the screenplays for "Mouse Hole," "Jumped" and "Wanted."
