The Birds

by Conor McPherson
from a story by Daphne du Maurier
September 6 – 29, 2019

Masses of birds have begun attacking people, driving strangers Nat and Diane to take refuge in an isolated, abandoned cabin. With no electricity and scarce food, their precarious existence is threatened even more by the arrival of a volatile young woman. With a nod to Daphne du Maurier’s story (that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s film), playwright McPherson creates his own dark, claustrophobic drama of survival in the face of society’s collapse.

This show runs approximately 2 hours, including one intermission. NOTE: Audience members may find some language offensive. The cigarette “smoke” you see onstage is a non-toxic vapor.
