Daphne du Maurier's short story, also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's classic film, is boldly adapted by Conor McPherson-- a gripping, unsettling and moving look at human relationships in face of societal collapse. In an isolated house, strangers Nat & 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 & 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.

This show is based on the movie by the same name. IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN AND CONTAINS HARSH LANGUAGE THAT MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE.
