The Birds begins performances tonight at Barrington Stage Company's St. Germain Stage.

Based on Daphne du Maurier's short story, made famous by Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 film, Conor McPherson's adaptation of The Birds is described as follows: "Mysterious masses of birds have begun to attack at high tide, driving strangers Nat and Diane to take refuge in an isolated, abandoned cabin and to form a bond to survive their haunting new circumstance. Yet if two is company, three is a crowd, as the sudden arrival of a young woman with a mysterious background ruffles feathers and quickly threatens to destroy their so-called sanctuary."

Featured in the cast are Stevie Ray Dallimore as Nat, Sasha Diamond as Julia, Kathleen McNenny as Diane, and Rocco Sisto as Tierney. Julianne Boyd directs.

Performances continue through July 8.
