WORLD PREMIERE TUES 29 SEP
PREVIEWS FROM FRI 25 SEP
Written and Directed by Conor McPherson
Adapted from the short story by Daphne Du Maurier
From the celebrated author of such masterworks as Rebecca, Jamaica Inn and My Cousin Rachel, comes Daphne Du Maurier’s enthralling gothic tale of mystery and suspense. Immortalised by Alfred Hitchcock in his legendary film and now re-imagined in a chilling new adaptation by acclaimed Irish playwright Conor McPherson, The Birds is an unrelenting and spellbinding portrait of terror and alienation.
The Birds will be presented as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival 2009.
