Synopsis: Pithetaerus and Euelpides are finished with human society. Seeking to rid themselves forever of “annoying pests” such as poets, lawyers, philosophers and tax collectors, they flee the city. Seeing the free life of the birds, the two convince the birds to start a new city in the clouds. But, no sooner have the city walls been built than they are barraged by the same agents of bureaucracy that Pithetaerus and Euelpides were trying to escape, not to mention the Olympian gods themselves, who are not happy to have been dethroned by the birds.
