By Conor McPherson adapted from the short story by Daphne du Maurier
Directed by Kevin Kingston

The Chicago premiere of Conor McPherson’s suspenseful, atmospheric look at the end of the world and the lengths people will go to protect themselves and those they care about. Based on Daphne du Maurier’s terrifying short story (on which Hitchcock’s famed 1963 thriller was based), the play follows a small group of strangers who take refuge in a remote cabin after mysterious masses of birds have begun to violently attack at high tide. As the situation becomes increasingly dire and the tension between the survivors inexorably grows, it isn’t long before they discover that the horror hovering outside is nothing compared to that which lurks within.
