About this title


Based on the lost Sophoclean play Tereus, The Three Birds beautifully explores the extremes of love as two Athenina sisters are separated by a man who marries one but desires the other. The epic images of Sophocles act as a metaphor for the exceptional passions which hide inside us all.

About the Author:

The Three Birds is her first play, as premiered at The Gate theatre. It won the Critics' Circle Most Promising Playwright Award and the Time Out Award for Most Outstanding new talent.
