    Synopsis: 

    A bold and suspenseful adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's short story, the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's legendary film of the same title, by critically-acclaimed Irish writer Conor McPherson.

    In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of mad attacking birds. The temporary sanctuary, however, provides little comfort, and when another refugee arrives with news of the outside world, paranoia takes hold of this makeshift fortress. A not-to-be-missed, gripping and emotional look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse.

    ‘The Birds’: Less-Than-Fierce-Feathered Nature in Revolt

    Ben Brantley

    September 15, 2016: For a vast and aggressive army of homicidal eye-gougers, the title creatures of Conor McPherson’s “The Birds” are a surprisingly low-key lot. The sounds of beating wings and rasping caws can now and then be heard, accompanied by abstract feathery projections, in the listless production that opened on Thursday night at 59E59 Theaters. But for the most part, you forget that these avian marauders are always hovering with intent to kill. You have to take on faith their status as an imminent and fatal threat to humanity.
