The Bird and the Baby Theater Company is a new theater troupe in the West Suburbs of Chicago. The name is derived from the pub-house backroom meeting place of a group of British writers who came to be known as The Inklings; among this group, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein. The company is under the artistic direction of Dan Roche, who led the Wheaton-based Stone Table Theatre in the 1990s, and has since produced and directed professionally in Chicago, Los Angeles, Orlando and NYC.
