Get Ready For Some Great Local Theater With ‘The Birds’ [VIDEO]
Looking for something to do this weekend? How about next weekend? If your answer is yes, you are in luck. The weather hasn’t been too crazy, so why not get out of the house and go check out some great local theater? Here’s one you don’t want to miss at the Ilion Little Theater. It’s literally “For the Birds”, but in a good way, I assure you.
There really is some great local talent right here in Central New York, and this show features some of the best in the area. Here is your opportunity to support the arts close to where you live.
The show is called ‘The Birds’, and it’s loosely (very loosely) based on Hitchcock’s classic.
From the Ilion Little Theater website:
“Based on the short story that was the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film - a gripping, unsettling, and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. They find relative sanctuary but not comfort or peace; there’s no electricity, little food, and a nearby neighbor may still be alive and watching them. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold of the makeshift fortress—an internal threat to match that of the birds outside. Written by Conor McPherson, Directed by Stephen Wagner”
