Theatre Suburbia presents the Conor McPherson's "The Birds," based on a story by Daphen Du Maurier; a gripping, unsettling, and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse.
In an isolated house, two strangers 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 that may still be alive and watching them. Another refugee arrives with some news of the outside world, but their 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.
"The Birds" take flight June 1 and runs through June 30. Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm (June 17 and 24, only) at Theatre Suburbia; located near northwest Houston at 4106 Way Out West, Suite N, near the intersection of West 43rd and Old Hempstead Highway.
