The Birds

by Aristophanes
February 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 2001

Directed by B. Michael Quale

It's not a Hitchcock thriller, but a mystery nonetheless.  Can man find and live in a perfect world?  Is a bird community that perfect world?  Travel along on the search for the kind of  place we all dream about- peaceful, loving, and free. With comedy, satire, and drama, Aristophanes builds a lyrical play around the search for Utopia. 

The Birds was first performed at the festival of the Great Dionysian in 414 B.C..  Although it was written over 2,000 years ago, it is recognized as one of the greatest comedies ever written.
