The Story Of Ya Bird?

Ya Bird? Productions is a Boston-based theatre company that was started by Greg Hovanesian in 2015. Ya Bird? aims to bring innovative, original works to the stage in and around New England. Before Ya Bird?, Greg lived in Vietnam, Boston, & Vermont.  His travels have helped him to write plays that he hopes will captivate audiences and open minds. 

Before producing anything with Ya Bird?, in June of 2016, Greg's first play to be produced onstage, WATER, won three awards at the Playwrights' Platform's 2016 Festival of New Plays (Boston Playwrights' Theatre): Best Play, Best Director (Haris Lefteri), and Best Actor (Greg Hovanesian). 

On October 30th, 2016, Greg produced his first full-length play with Ya Bird? Productions at the Rockwell in Davis Square, Somerville, MA.  It was titled THIRSTY and it addressed a lot of issues we hear about in contemporary America: online dating, cellphones and their apps, our view of sex in today's society, and of course, vampires.  But...were they really vampires?  Or something else?  Something more...human?  Who knows...you'll have to check it out when it hits the stage again!
