The Albatross 3rd & Main

Park Theatre

The Park Theatre hosts The Albatross 3rd & Main, a punchy black comedy exploring the shadowy flip side of the American Dream.

Three guys. A mountain of debt. And a box of priceless roadkill.

Gene Lacy is down on his luck. He’s ducking creditors, huge gambling debts, and an ex-wife with very expensive tastes. So when Spider walks into his store with a golden lottery ticket in the shape of a rare and valuable dead bird, doing a black market deal with the nearby Native American reservation seems like a no-brainer. As it’s a felony offence to even be in possession of the bird, the road to turning the windfall into a win for all is fraught with danger at every turn for this backwater band of desperados.

Written and Directed by Simon David Eden, The Albatross 3rd & Main is a punchy black comedy set in a rundown general store in small-town Massachusetts, that explores the dark side of the ‘Eagle Feather Law’: US federal legislation which states that only enrolled members of federally approved tribes can legally possess eagle feathers. But the law denies many of the indigenous population their sovereignty and makes practicing their ancient rituals and tribal ceremonies illegal. 

Age Recommendation: 14+ (strong language).
