The play follows the fallout from a father's decision to leave his family to follow the migration of the birds. The family's mother also moves her 12-year-old twins and mother-in-law to another state to start over and learns to cope with the changes in her family.

The production, directed by Elizabeth Bunnell, will feature Margot Avery, Emma Galvin, Noah Galvin, Annie McGovern and Jay Potter.

Lichtig's play will run in repertory with Prescription Strength Theater, two new one-act plays about healthcare written by Patrick Link and Sharyn Rothstein.
