By Conor McPherson
Based on the short story by Daphne du Maurier
Directed by Zachary Stofer
Mysterious masses of birds have begun to violently attack at high tide, driving strangers Nat and Diane to take refuge in an isolated, abandoned house by the sea and form a bond to survive their haunting new circumstance. With no electricity and scarce food, the tension is palpable and hope is waning. Yet if two is company, three is a crowd, as the sudden arrival of a young woman with a mysterious nature of her own ruffles feathers in the house and quickly threatens to destroy their so-called sanctuary.
Based on the same short story that inspired Hitchcock’s iconic film, The Birds is a terrifying and thrilling new work from one of the world’s most dazzling writers that provides a haunting and haunted glimpse into a world teetering on the brink of apocalypse. Once the lights go down you will be locked inside a seaside house with these men and women as they struggle to survive. Featuring a nerve-shredding script, scream-inducing special effects and a sound design that will envelope you with claustrophobic thrills, The Birds will ratchet up the terror as the twists and turns mount on the way to a gripping and jaw-dropping conclusion.
