Posters for The Birds and Mother Courage

The Birds

The Birds was adapted from Daphne du Maurier’s novelette published in 1952 – the same novella that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s film. When relentless flocks of birds begin attacking people at high tide, two strangers find themselves vying for shelter and supplies. They begin to form a fragile bond; one that threatens to be shattered when another mysterious survivor arrives.

Characters: 2M, 2F

Mother Courage and Her Children

The epic is set in Europe, during the Thirty Years War in the 17th century. Mother Courage follows the Protestant army with her cart and offspring in tow, hocking her wares and bargaining for the lives of her three children.

Title role precast for a graduate thesis project.

Characters: 15+ actors, Mother Courage is a large cast show with singing and non-singing roles available.
