THE BIRDS

A Greek Comedy

by Aristophanes

Why do humans go looking for a better life ? The Birds, a fantasy play written by Aristophanes in 414 BC, follows two Athenians who, disappointed by our current society, reach out to the world’s birds for inspiration. But is a Cloud-Cuckoo-Land the ideal solution and are feathers and wings sufficient to change human behavior? Come see Aristophanes’ experiment on creating a utopia!
