BirdLand Theatre presents
A bold and suspenseful adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s short story, the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary film of the same title, by critically acclaimed Irish writer Conor McPherson. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of mad attacking birds. The temporary sanctuary however provides little comfort and when another refugee arrives with news of the outside world, paranoia takes hold of this makeshift fortress. A not-to-be-missed gripping and emotional look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse.
