contingency plan
Inspired by Aristophanes’ The Birds, Cloudcuckooland tell the story of Swift and McFly. The two are fed up of the dirty, stinking town that they live in. So they decide to found a new city in the sky with the birds: Cloudcuckooland.

But the birds want revenge on the human race for destroying their habitat. The birds battle to save the planet with strategic bird-pooing.

Cloudcuckooland is a musical comedy satire for family audiences.

    Editor's note: The 'greening' of this production sparked a dislogue on the Standing Committeee of University Drama Departments (SCUDD) e-mail list, commented on in our Ashdenizen blog on 1 April 2009.
Cloudcuckooland is a production by The Onassis Programme for the Performance of Greek Drama at Oxford University, which commissions, develops and produces work by international theatre artists inspired by Greek drama.

The production toured nationally and internationally. It played at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was nominated for a Total Theatre Award.
