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 live music, puppetry and lots of silly bird jokes in this heart-fluttering physical comedy.
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 gently explores the impact of humans on nature and asks the question - what can we do differently?
Written by award-winning playwright T.A. Woodsmith, directed by Susana Alcantud, with upcycled set and costumes by designer Bronia Housman and original music by Catherine Burke. Artwork by The Wooden Spoon Press.
****"Funny, charming and thought-provoking" CreativeReviewsUK
“Comical songs and mesmerising puppetry blend with facts and jokes to create a thought-provoking, touching piece of theatre about conservation, migration and imagination.”
