Aristophanes' The Birds

Aristophanes' The Birds $13

Brian Reno & Gabriel Vega Weissman

Published by Dramatists Play Service

Two movie moguls abandon an increasingly vain and shallow society and make their way into the desert to live among the birds

Seeking the freedom and tranquility that comes with bird-living, they must make a case for why they deserve an avian transformation

But all they have to offer are the pieces of civilization they’ve tried to leave behind

The Birds begs the question:

Can human beings truly go against their nature?

Originally performed in 414 BC and written chock-a-block full of pop culture references of the time, Reno and Weissman have dusted off Aristophanes’ Attic Comedy and provided opportunities for theatremakers to tailor the play to their particular place and time

The result is an hilarious examination of humanity’s desperate need for control, privilege, and conspicuous consumption
