Night Wings

Eleanor Albanese has written a new play, and along with some other actors, will be giving a play reading tonight at Waverley Library. In this play, she has created an old Finnish man, Mr. Lintunen (Mr. Little Bird). The young talkative city-dwelling girl in this play meets Mr. Lintunen, who is an idiosyncratic loner who loves birds. Eleanor and I had some interesting conversations about the fictional old Finnish man while she was researching this play. If you are in town, the reading starts at 7:30 pm.

What a wonderful illustration, and the play sounds delightful! Wish I could be there.

Hello Marja-leena,

The play reading was great! The story has changed since Eleanor first began and has evolved into the most amazing play that mixes a family's story with a fairy tale. Mr. Lintunen has become Ukki. I will post more when I have time.
