Her adapted script is here:

(SCENE:- Athens. EUELPIDES and PITHETAERUS enter with birds on their hands)

EUELPIDES (to his bird) So which way now?

PITHETAERUS (to his bird)
What? You think I should go that way?

EUELPIDES (listening to his bird)
You said that last time and we’ve ended up here again!

PITHETAERUS

Great! We’re lost!

EUELPIDES

You mean, you don’t know the way home either?

PITHETAERUS

Nope.

EUELPIDES

I’d say something rude but there are teachers here and those government spies might report us…

PITHETAERUS

Jeez Euelpides, I don’t think the government are too fussed about the fact you happen to say the S word in front some kids, and anyway, the teachers are long gone. Since the coronavirus, they’ve taken their chance to lie on some beach in Hawaii and forget about the horrors of children.

EUELPIDES

You never know…

EUELPIDES

Anyway, man, we were well and truly mugged! Two birds to tell the way and we still got lost. (To his bird) No! I’m not going that way again. (To PITHETAERUS) And which way does your bird say we should go?

PITHETAERUS

He says that, if I don’t feed him soon, he’s gonna eat my fingers.

EUELPIDES

We’re doomed! But perhaps we should explain to the audience what we’re doing? Yeah? Ok. (To audience) We’re leaving this dump. We’ve had enough. We don’t exactly hate the place, but it got really bad when Donald Trump became president.

PITHETAERUS

And even worse when Boris Johnson (AKA The BJ) became prime minister.

EUELPIDES (interrupting)
And now this! The Coronavirus. We have really had enough. So we are going to live with the birds

PITHETAERUS

His idea (pointing at EUELPIDES).

EUELPIDES

Was not! But if it was, it was a very good idea…

PITHETAERUS

Here! Look!

EUELPIDES

What, man?

PITHETAERUS

My crow’s pointing to something up there!

EUELPIDES

What do we do?

PITHETAERUS

Do you know what to do?

EUELPIDES

Dunno. Make bird noises, I guess.

EUELPIDES

(calling out) Epops, epops!

PITHETAERUS (to audience)
Yes, he is insane. Too much time off school hasn’t done his too good.

EUELPIDES

Hey! I heard that! And anyway, I’m not insane.

PITHETAERUS

Oh really…

EUELPIDES

Really. I’ll prove it to you, (asks the audience) I’m not insane, am I? (waits for audience response). I’m not am I? am I?

PITHETAERUS

Umm… well that’s that sorted.
