Diane and Nat are strangers, trapped in a house in the countryside. If they leave they risk being attacked, their eyes pecked out and their bodies left to rot. They must find a way to survive, to escape their prison even as the secrets and lies between them grow deeper and more deadly.
Blue Panther Productions in association with Symmetry Theatre Company presents the Bay Area Premiere of The Birds, Conor McPherson’s adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s classic thriller.
McPherson’s (The Seafarer) tense, claustrophobic adaptation will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. Alfred Hitchcock fans will love this edgier version, which includes elements of his iconic 1963 horror film.
Directed by Chloe Bronzan, starring Martha Brigham*, Kevin Kieta, Laura Lundy, and Robert Parsons *, The Birds has an exclusive 3 weekend run in the Carriage House of Oakland’s 1869 Pardee Home, a part of the estate rarely open to the public.
