If robots are taking our jobs, why are we all still working so hard? A group of actors delves into a dialectical exchange about Universal Basic Income, the Green New Deal, and the American economy while completing a series of strange, repetitive, and entertaining tasks that may or may not be accomplishing anything at all. The first part in a trilogy of plays about the problems of 21st-century global capitalism, The Drinking Bird explores the meaning of work—and the value of humans—in an increasingly automated age.
