A Flap-tastic Family Comedy – on tour Spring / Summer 2019

With frolics and foraging, flitting, flying and two unusual feathery friends, this is a madcap and touching show about birds facing changes to their habitat. The Bird Show uses music, puppetry and lots of silly bird jokes in this heart-fluttering physical comedy about conservation, migration and imagination.
**** “Funny, charming and thought-provoking” – CreativeReviewsUK

We follow Henry the Heron and Sally the House Sparrow on a zany journey to become friends while facing ecological threats to their habitat. This colourful, visual show uses music, object puppetry, dance and low-fi acrobatics to gently explore the impact of humans on nature and asks the question – what can we do differently?

Written by award-winning playwright Tiffany Woodsmith, directed by international director Susana Alcantud, with designer Bronia Housman and original music by Catherine Burke.

This show is sponsored by Sovereign Housing as part of their support for oracy for young people in the town.
