BIRDBATH is an adaptation of playwright Leonard Melfi's most well-known play. Since the play opened in New York's East Village in 1965, over 4000 productions have been done around the world, and this is the first adaptation allowed since 1971. Over the course of one February night, two strangers, a lonely waitress and a prodigal poet, form an unexpected connection.
