In a country falling apart, three queer women flock together.

thing with feathers, a University of Iowa Gallery Production written by graduate student Sam Collier, will open in Theater Building Theater B at 8 p.m. today. Shows will continue at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Nov. 9.

Described by Collier as "part myth, part apocalyptic fairy tale, and part love story," thing with feathers features two characters that are able to turn into birds as well as actual birds as the audiences would know them. The women struggle with love and hope, trying to prosper in their ruined homeland.

Collier is a third-year M.F.A. playwright who last teamed up with thing with feathers's director Nina Morrison, a second-year M.F.A. director, in May for Suit of Leaves.

Tickets for the production are free for students, $5 for non students, and are available in the Theatre Building lobby one hour before showtime.
