AT THE SANTA PAULA THEATER CENTER
SPTC welcomes back to our stage another work by critically acclaimed playwright Conor McPherson (THE NIGHT ALIVE, SHINING CITY, THE SEAFARER, THE WEIR) with the apocalyptic thriller THE BIRDS. 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 Daphne DuMaurier short story that inspired Hitchcock’s famous film, THE BIRDS is a chilling psychological portrait of fear and alienation. You may think you know what to expect, but you have no idea!
THE BIRDS runs June 23, 2017 through July 30, 2017 - Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm, Sundays at 4:00 pm.
