Bird’s trio of plays included in Sauk Shorts

Trinity Bird has been doing theater since high school. He has acted, directed and designed productions throughout the state. Now, at age 42, he is experiencing something new.

Bird, the executive director at The Sauk, Hillsdale County’s community theater, has added playwright to his resume. Two of his short plays are included in the 2022 edition of the Sauk Shorts, being performed this weekend at Sauk Theater in Jonesville.

“Arts reminds us that we are not alone,” Bird said. “I was sitting alone in my apartment during quarantine and I needed to create something. I sat down at my computer and let the ideas come naturally.”

Sidekick came first. A story about two teenage friends who come to a crossroads in their friendship. Then, a second story emerged, lightly inspired by his late grandmother, a short play called “The Room at the End of the Hall.”
