Theatre Three presents The Birds
Rounding out the Theatre Too season is Conor McPherson’s thrilling play, The Birds adapted from a story by Daphne du Maurier (also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film). An unsettling and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse, The Birds is set in an isolated house where strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. They find relative sanctuary but not comfort or peace. There’s no electricity, little food, and a nearby neighbor may still be alive and watching them. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold of the makeshift fortress—an internal threat to match that of the birds outside.
Production will be in the Theatre Too space at Theatre Three.
