Aristophanes trans Sean O'Brien

A contemporary adaptation of The Birds by a award-winning poet Sean O'Brien

Pez and Eck are on the hunt for the perfect society in "a city where free men might live like birds". But when they start building the bird city for real, Pez starts to have ambitions - which seem not a million miles away from dictatorship

As the fantasy utopia threatens to turn into a tyranny the birds start to rebel

Sean O'Brien's new verse version brings Aristophanes' devastatingly ironic comment on human ambition bang up-to-date and is brimful of jokes ancient and modern
