  11. Theater Review: "The Birds" @ Barrington Stage Co. [Berkshire on Stage]Read the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jun 22 | Nippertown!

    To be clear! The title of the short story "The Birds" written by Daphne Du Maurier in 1952 is the only thing the play - currently at Barrington Stage Company's St. Germain Stage in Pittsfield - has in common with Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1963 thriller. Adapted for the stage by acclaimed Irish playwright Conor McPherson , "The Birds" has a prescient quality in that the human race is doomed due to climate change, a phrase that does not occur in the play.
