Set a Flight Pattern to see “Fly Eagles Fly” at the Fringe Arts Festival

Tribe of Fools soars to higher theatrical heights with an Eagles-themed FringeArts show.

By Joseph Myers

Until February 4, when the Philadelphia Eagles used their talons and talents to defeat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, holding allegiance to the Birds had mostly meant dealing with disappointment. Now that the gridiron group holds championship distinction, the city has collectively found itself captivated and even adopting atypical athletic swagger. South Philly-heavy performance collective Tribe of Fools chose to capture that joy through “Fly Eagles Fly,” a runaway favorite in this year’s FringeArts Festival.

“It’s so interesting, especially in Philadelphia, how sports can affect so many individuals’ demeanors and dispositions,” artistic director Terry Brennan, who is also co-directing the 90-minute look at fandom and friendship, said before a recent performance. “When we look back to seven months ago, that’s where we got that rare example of just how good it can feel to go from being in the hunt to being the best of the best.”

The West Passyunk resident and his peers are presenting the office-situated comedy through September 22 at Center City’s Louis Bluver Theatre at the Drake. Touching on the depth of personal interactions, social matters, self-knowledge and concern for others—all frequent Tribe of Fools themes—the plot follows the riveting 2017 campaign that culminated in the title game upset over the vaunted Patriots, whose quarterback ends up as a character dubbed “evil, imaginary Tom Brady” in the show.
