Work type: Play.


The Citizens Young Co. perform a raunchy comedy full of saucy innuendo and song based on an ancient Greek comedy. Disillusioned with their humdrum existence in the city, a pair of wanderers seek a better way of life. With help from the self-appointed King Tereus - a man transformed into a Hoopoe Bird - an unlikely alliance between the humans and a great flock of fantastical birds creates a new city in the skies and holds the gods to ransom.Presented byCitizens Young Co. Adapted by Stephen Greenhorn.
