Bird

Date: 6 Oct 2019

Ava and Tash are on a cliff, looking out at the flocking birds – and at their future.

About to leave the care home they’ve shared, the two friends road-test their impending freedom and living in the outside world.

Ava must confront the mother she left behind. Tash will have to look for a new home. And both girls will go on living dangerously with the men who surround them.

Raw, delicate and bold, Katherine Chandler’s Bird was the winner of a Judges’ Award in the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and premiered at Sherman Cymru in 2016 before transferring to the Royal Exchange, Manchester.

Secret House presents this Australian premiere, directed by Jane Angharad,
