Source Arts Theatre In Thurles Presents The Birds

Tipperary company Sound Out Theatre presents Conor McPherson’s adaptation of this chilling short story by Daphne du Maurier. The Birds sees three strangers thrust together in an unnatural post-apocalyptic world. McPherson’s play explores the darkest corners of the human psyche as a hard-wired need to survive takes over. Moral lines blur, and even the most sinister of actions becomes justifiable. Contains strong language; suitable for ages 15 and over.

Fresh from Northern Ireland’s most renowned stage – The Lyric Theatre, Joanne is delighted to be back in her home town working with Tipperary theatre company Sound Out Theatre on their newest production of the thrilling master piece by Conor McPherson; The Birds.
