    A family is torn between blood and belonging in BIRDS OF A KIND, Stratford Festival Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino’s “cinematic swirl of a production” (Globe & Mail). Weaving together multiple languages and divergent worlds of experience, this powerful contemporary drama probes to the very heart of who we are – or think we are. Wahida, an Arab-American woman, and Eitan, a Jewish geneticist, fall in love in New York City. They travel together to Israel to meet Eitan’s estranged grandmother – who holds the key to a long-buried family secret. But it takes a terrorist bombing for that shattering secret to emerge.
