Friday Connor McPherson's "The Birds" is only loosely connected with Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 avian epic, and was adapted from British writer Daphne du Maurier's same-titled novelette. The plot follows strangers Nat and Diane, who take refuge and bond to survive the unnerving horde of birds who've begun assaulting their town in kamikaze-style attacks. Note: "The Birds" also shouldn't be confused with the "Angry Birds" app. Premieres at 8 p.m. at Plantation's Mosaic Theatre, 12200 W. Broward Blvd. $15-40. 954-577-8243 or MosaicTheatre.org.
