Trailer for Forward Theatre Project's show 'BIRD' - a new piece of family-friendly outdoor theatre about flight, freedom and the relationship between humankind and nature.
A lonely young boy makes friends with a fledgeling bird, and his eyes are opened to the natural world around him.
Featuring storytelling, puppetry and live music, this is a feast for all the senses – an unusual and heartwarming modern fable. On an outdoor stage with the sky as its limit, we tell a story to appeal to adults and children alike – about friendship, growing up, and the joys of the imagination.
‘BIRD’ is created by playwrights Nikki Williams and Ben Ellis, director Amelia Bird, designer Lydia Denno, and puppeteer Annie Brooks.
"With a charming selection of bird puppets, ... a delightful puppeteer and perfect accompaniment from the live clarinet and accordionist this show is a delight for all ages, all children were enthralled.’"
