The Birds (a modern adaptation of Aristophanes' comedy) by Yvette Nolan
In this updated version of Aristophanes’ classic comedy The Birds, two men flee the modern world, arriving in the fabled land of the birds seeking freedom and a better way of life. But the men are unable to resist remaking this utopian paradise in their own image, without regard for the inhabitants who already occupy the land . . . In this playful modern retelling, The Birds reflects on pressing contemporary Indigenous questions about truth and reconciliation.
