Imagine if Benny Hill took a break from running around to “Yakety Sax” to direct an ancient Greek comedy. How absurd – how amazing – would that be? Probably as mind-blowing as Birds, Burt McCollom’s hilariously inspired adaptation of Aristophanes’ play The Birds. Combining the pop culture savvy of Shrek and the manic energy of Hee Haw, this deliciously over-the-top comedy follows two humans (think Abbott and Costello) who flee the world of lawyers, politicians and taxes in search of a simpler life. They concoct a crazy plan to build a city in the clouds, a realm ruled by the Birds, which forces both man below and gods above to do their bidding. Be there as the Tri-County Players perform this brilliant and energetic re-imagining of one of the theater’s most enduring comedies.
