From the show:

In his first world premiere since the critically acclaimed Spaceman, which earned fellow company member Erin Treadway a Drama Desk Nomination For Best Solo performance, Leegrid Stevens continues to break apart themes of belief and delusion with A Peregrine Falls. Charlie’s daughter, Kailey, returns home with exciting news of a pregnancy but joy quickly turns to dread when facts emerge that paint Kailey’s story in a much darker light. The play explores the power of illusion and why sometimes it’s impossible to see what’s right in front of you.

"Clocking in at two hours/two acts/four scenes, it moseys between three locales: a Texas hospital, a hospital court, and a car dealership. Along the way, it makes a surprising avian/automotive connection, all while hatching the story of how abuse stuns and wounds a family, collectively and indivi...
