Imago Theatre does it again as Conor McPherson’s version of The Birds takes one of Hitchcock’s most iconic films and transforms it into a chilling onstage chamber drama.
The four characters struggle to survive an intensive airborne apocalypse in this new version more faithful to Daphne du Maurier’s original than the celebrated film.
Director Jerry Mouawad, producer Carol Triffle, actor Matt DiBiasio, lighting designer Jon Farley and sound designer Myrrh Larsen collaborated on the production. The play sounds perfect for the scary time of year.
The Birds is presented Fridays and Saturdays, November 5-20 live at Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th Ave. The curtain goes up each night at 7:30 pm and tickets are $20 at tinyurl.com/imagobirds.
Audiences are required to follow mask mandates and must show vaccination cards and photo ID upon entry. They must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or show proof of a negative test taken within 48 hours of the performance date.
