About the SUMMER REP

THE BIRDS is part of Sylvia Center’s 2019 Summer Rep, an ambitious mini-season of five plays based on the mythology of Ancient Greece, presented in contemporary versions that are funny, surprising, and unexpected:

Proceeds from the two paid indoor shows (AJAX, THE ODYSSEY) support and make possible three FREE shows in the park (BRISES, THE BIRDS, AN ILIAD).
