The Regretfully, So the Birds Are play centers on three adopted siblings: Mora, Neel, and Illy Whistler. They all have journeys ahead of them: Mora to find her birth mother, Neel to find himself after realizing he's tone-deaf, and Illy to stay put and hang onto a piece of the sky she's bought. But their messy family — including a mother who's committed arson and murder, a father who's a snowman, and a relationship between Illy and Neel. At once a farce and a tragedy, Regretfully, So the Birds Are explores Asian American identities and the dark sides of trying to find one's identity.
