Presented by Chicken Pox Fox in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2013

One woman. One secret. And One Direction.

Brown Owl Beth is the model Brown Owl. She’s selfless, sensible and everyone comes second to her sixes. But when ten year old Phoebe becomes the new addition to her proud nest, Beth’s commitment to a good deed every day is tested to breaking point.

Brown Owl Beth brings about a chain of events from which her community may never recover, one which may leave this bird with more than broken wings.

Brown Bird is the new one woman show from the critically acclaimed company behind Donna Disco, ‘like Carrie re-written by Morrissey’ (Fest).

From the author who brought Chalet Lines to the Bush Theatre.
