Conor McPherson from Daphne du Maurier

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 2 Female

First a short story

Then a terrifying film

Now a suspenseful and atmospheric stage play

From Tippi Hedren, star of the Hitchcock film ...

" ... a powerful piece of theatre and a reminder to me of just how important that story has become truly frightening"

As in Hitchcock's famous film, masses of birds have begun to violently attack humans at high tide ...

... driving strangers Nat and Diane to take refuge in an isolated, abandoned farmhouse by the sea

But with no electricity and food scarce, the tension is palpable and hope is waning

And if two's company, three's certainly a crowd

As the sudden arrival of the mysterious Julia soon proves

Boldly adapted by Conor McPherson this is a gripping, unsettling, and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse


" ... deliciously chilling ... spring-loaded with tension" ~ Irish Independent

"McPherson keeps us on the edge of our seat" ~ Irish Times
