Believing better is possible is the first step. When the call goes out the birds of the world – all sizes, colours, and abilities – gather as one great flock, and embark on an epic journey in search of self, enlightenment, and truth. The beloved allegorical poem by Persian poet Farid al-Din Attar comes to life in a new adaptation filled with hope, that is both timeless and sits firmly in the present. 

Audiences enjoy unlimited access to the audio drama from the premiere date until June 30, 2021. You will receive an email on May 26 with a link to log into your account and listen to an embedded audio file through your computer or device.

Complimentary access for Front Line Workers  and members of our Free 25 and Under program sponsored by Sun Life.
