Jack, a bird, is in love with Desmonde, a student. She doesn't know he exists - and to further complicate matters, she is a human being, and Jack has only the vaguest idea of what human beings are about. The play explores the interaction of different kinds of powerlessness - linguistic, social, and economic - and the danger of treating others as symbols rather than individuals. It is also about being a bird. As the action progresses through monologue, dance, invocation, and the fractured intimacy of drunken conversation, two very different worlds emerge: one in which Jack lives out his fantasies, and one in which Desmonde and her friends get on with their lives.
