a part of Berwyn Reads!

In Fall 2011, 16th Street Theater joined the Berwyn Library in leading a community wide artistic exploration of the Berwyn Reads book of the year, Parrot In The Oven by Victor Martinez.

Additional community partners included Morton High School, Gallery 16, Berwyn C.A.R.E.S., FitzGerald’s and the North Berwyn Park District.

During the fall, community groups from across Berwyn read and discussed Parrot in the Oven and, with the aid of a professional teaching artist, created a performance bringing each chapter of the book to life.

The project culminated in a FREE community performance at FitzGerald’s .
