Set in rural Wisconsin during the great passenger pigeon nesting of 1871 (memorable for having involved an estimated 136 million birds), this Lifeline Theatre adaptation of Amy Timberlake’s much-honored children’s novel centers on a 13-year-old tomboy called Georgie who refuses to believe that her older sister is dead, despite powerful evidence to the contrary, and sets out to find the truth. There’s something to be said for Lifeline’s refusal to sugarcoat Georgie: as played by Ashley Darger, she’s as obnoxious as only an adolescent who’s discovered morality can be. Trouble is, there’s no payoff for having to endure the little brat. Darger’s performance gives no indication of growth over the course of a poorly structured, loose-ended, overlong show that never justifies its central metaphor. –Tony Adler
