09 Birds L

From the celebrated author of such masterworks as Rebecca, Jamaica Inn and My Cousin Rachel, comes Daphne Du Maurier’s enthralling gothic tale of mystery and suspense. Immortalised by Alfred Hitchcock in his legendary film and now re-imagined in a chilling new adaptation by acclaimed Irish playwright Conor McPherson, The Birds is an unrelenting and spellbinding portrait of terror and alienation.

The Gate has a long and close relationship with the award-winning playwright, screenwriter and director, Conor McPherson, premiering many of his works both at home and abroad, many of which the author also directed. These productions include The Weir, Dublin Carol, Come On Over, Port Authority and Shining City. The world premier of The Birds will be the fourth play by McPherson to be presented by the Gate in the Festival.

It will blow you away because a Gate presentation of a new work by Conor McPherson, with some of the finest actors Ireland has ever produced, is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the theatrical year.

Please note that due to technical reason's beyond the Festival's control, the published preview on September 24th has been moved to September 26th at 3pm.
