The Bird Show
A flap-tastic fact-filled family comedy by The Last Baguette, suitable for the whole brood including fledglings from 4+
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 more silly bird puns in this heart- fluttering physical comedy about conservation, migration and imagination.
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.
“The energy and commitment of the company is infectious. This is unique small scale theatre with a great heart.”
“A fun-filled family show!”
