Part performance, part game, part celebration, Especially on Birthdays engages children in deeply human stories of friendship, play, giving, receiving, sharing, forgiving and understanding.

“Playful, interactive and visually striking. Especially on Birthdays explores existential issues relating to time, aging, friendship and conflict. And boy, were the kids into it.”
–Emma Halpern, American Theatre Magazine
