The world premiere of Carrier Pigeon!
This August Skylar Beirne's Carrier Pigeon premieres at Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival.
Beginning on the one year anniversary of her survival of a mass shooting, Joy battles Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, agoraphobia, borderline alcoholism, and the feelings of intense, irremediable loneliness. To cope, Joy locks everyone out except for sexual partners, her occasionally intrusive sister, Lauren, Mom, and Peter, the carrier pigeon that delivers letters from a mysterious Jordan.
With the return of her father's cancer, her sister's impending wedding, and the allure of a not-so-distant pen pal and potential romantic partner, Joy must decide whether or not her shut- in/shut-out lifestyle is truly sustainable, or if there is more to living than merely surviving.

Risks and challenges
We are excited to premiere this intelligent and topical show, but we need support from backers like you! Luckily, we run very few risks in this process as we have secured much of our team and are fortunate enough to partner with the wonderful Theater for the New City and participate in their acclaimed Dream Up Festival. Our main challenges revolve around being able to utilize resources such as an intimacy coordinator which will make this experience safer and more valuable for our actors. We want to make this show the best it can be while providing a comfortable work environment for everyone involved. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the show!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
