THE WORLD WITHOUT BIRDS
A MUSICAL FABLE
26th October – 6th November 2016
La Mama Courthouse
Written by Christine Croyden. Directed by Elizabeth Walley. Songs by Ellar Filar. Set and Costume Design by Dagmara Gieysztor. Lighting design by Matthew Barber. Performers: Margot Knight (Queen of the Birds), Charlotte Fox, Rhys James and Nathaniel Schneider. Running time: 60 minutes.
When the Queen of the Birds meets two young COCKtails at the theatre she realises she’s about to fall from her perch. Together with her younger self, a chirpy songbird and notorious party girl, she embarks on a wild musical ride from disco to Weimer style cabaret and back again. ‘A darkly comic tale of creativity, ageing and finding grace as we’re replaced by the next generation.’ – Emilie Collyer, dramaturge.
Congratulations to writer, director, cast and crew on the success of The World Without Birds. It attracted strong audiences and excellent reviews.
