May 13 @ 7:30 pm
the American Premiere of Nikos Karathanos’ The Birds, a modern, feast-for-the-senses adaptation of Aristophanes’ offbeat and poetic comedy. This vibrant restaging owes as much to Eden as it does to the Amazon, and captures the collective spirit of revolution with a company of 19 actors. Two Athenians, Peisthetaerus and Euelpides, are fed up with their city and the gods who rule over it; they take to the woods, seeking out “birds” to build a utopia in the clouds.
Performances of The Birds will take place May 2-5 and 8-12 at 7:30pm; May 6 & 13 at 5pm; and May 12 at 2pm
