The Birds
Time: 3:00pm PT
Location: 6322 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038
Aristophanes' THE BIRDS
adapted by Sabrina Lloyd & the Ensemble
directed by Sabrina Lloyd

When the world has gone to the birds, the cuckoo is king. Two shiftless con men scheme to exploit the power of the birds by encouraging them to build a fortress in the sky, from where they can lord over mankind and Gods alike. From a bird's eye (and bird-brained) view, Aristophanes' classic comedy THE BIRDS takes a look at corruption, weakness and power; how easily people are exploited based on fear, ego and greed; and how even noble ideas may be corrupted if those who have power are irresponsible and/or selfish. (Sound like anything going on now? Hm? Too soon?) Or, as John Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton said to an Anglican bishop, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men..."

Performing in the Broadwater Black Box.
