Three Birds

Sold out

The Royal Exchange Theatre in association with the Bush Theatre presents the 2011 Bruntwood Prize-Winner

Siblings Tiana, Tionne and Tanika have found themselves home alone. Tiana’s keeping it all together by taking charge of housework and homework.

But Tionne’s experiments are getting stranger and Tanika’s starting to act up. As the outside world begins to press in, the three will do anything to keep their secret safe from the adults who come to call.

A startling and darkly comic drama about childhood, family and fantasy.

Set in South East London, Three Birds by London writer Janice Okoh was the winner of the 2011 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting.

'A play that is as humane as it is savage...as funny as it is alarming. It is written with as much warmth as it is with truth. It's funny and theatrical and alert and alive. It's terrific'
Simon Stephens, Playwright and Chair of the Judges for the 2011 Bruntwood prize

Work Experience Diary | Myla “I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect”

Myla took part in a week of work experience at the Bush.
