The 11th season of Native Voices the Autry, starts Oct. 7 with “The Bird House,” by Diane Glancy, who is Cherokee.
Native Voices also produced Glancy’s play “Salvage” in 2008. Native Voices is the country’s only Equity theater company dedicated exclusively to developing and producing new works by Native American playwrights, according to Broadway World:
Set in the back room of a failing church in the high plains of Texas, The Bird House delves into the lives of a minister and his two sisters as they sort through the snarls of their past and adapt to loss and the uncertain future of their home and family. The cast includes Ellen Dostal as Clovis, and Native Voices Founder/Producing Artistic Director Randy Reinholz (Choctaw*) as Jonathan Logan/ Reverend Hawk, a part written specifically for him.
