The Birds by Aristophanes, arranged for the stage by Walter Kerr
The Play: We are producing a modern(ish?) adaptation of The Birds. The Birds is a classic Greek comedy with masks, dances, Gods, and way more birds than you know what to do with.
Pisthetaerus and Euelpides have fled Athens and are looking for the King of the Birds to see if he can give them a better life. After many mishaps and a brawl or two, Pisthetaerus and Euelpides convince the birds to start their own city in the sky to spite the Gods, and immediately regret that decision in hilarious and oddly timely ways.

HOW TO GET THERE: Start at Jongno 5-ga Station. Go out Exit 2 and walk straight. You will pass the True Friend bank, a Paris Baguette, and a Dunkin Donuts. Keep walking to the next main intersection and cross the street in front of the large Church (연동교회). Go straight keeping the church on your left. At the next small side street (which is at about a 45 degree angle, with a CU on the corner) turn left. Head up the street. Walk about 100 meters, the theater will be on your left hand side. Go down the steps past the Dasarang Coffee House to the bottom of the stairs.
Please give yourself time to find the venue and plan on arriving around 10 minutes early. This will give you time to fill out an audition form so you can jump right in and get as many chances to read as possible during your 50 minute time slot.
If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to email us. The Birds is a very fun play and we're so excited to have a talented director on board for this production. We'd love to have you along for the journey!
