A thrilling, fast paced adventure about the journey of becoming a mother. With physical mayhem, comedy and live original music, Birdy is a love story that skips brazenly past the 'happy ever after' and laughs joyously at the absurdity of real life.
A famous showgirl, Birdy and a hopeless young illusionist fall passionately in love, but with the birth of their first child, the spotlight suddenly shifts.
Birdy was originally directed by Mella Faye Punchard for The Hurly Burly and then reworked for conventional theatre spaces by Abigail Dooley (Co-winner of the 2011 Comedy Sitcom Mission Award).
'Birdy' was presented at RichMix (London), The Old Market (Brighton), The Marlowe (Canterbury), The Norwich Playhouse, West End Centre (Aldershot), The Castle (Wellingborough) and South Hill Park Arts Centre (Bracknell).
