Study Guide: The Conference of the Birds


The Folger Study Guide to The Conference of the Birds includes a plot summary, background information, activities, and additional resources. Students and teachers may use it to prepare for the Folger Theatre performance or in their own classroom.  While seeing live performances is a wonderful way to study, much of the material can be used even if you won't be seeing the story onstage.
