The Bird Show
A flap-tastic fact-filled family comedy by The Last Baguette.

Taking bookings for Easter 2020

With frolics and foraging, flitting, flying and two unusual feathery friends, this is a madcap and touching show about birds facing changes to their habitat. The Bird Show uses live music, puppetry and lots of silly bird jokes in this heart-fluttering physical comedy.

We follow Henry the Heron and Sally the House Sparrow on a zany journey to become friends while facing ecological threats to their habitat. This colourful, visual show gently explores the impact of humans on nature and asks the question – what can we do differently?

Written by award-winning playwright T.A. Woodsmith, directed by Susana Alcantud, with upcycled set and costumes by designer Bronia Housman and original music by Catherine Burke. Artwork by The Wooden Spoon Press.

****”Funny, charming and thought-provoking” CreativeReviewsUK

“Comical songs and mesmerising puppetry blend with facts and jokes to create a thought-provoking, touching piece of theatre about conservation, migration and imagination.”
Weston-super-Mum

Suitable for the whole brood including fledglings from 3+

The Last Baguette makes fast-paced, irreverent physical comedy. We are company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham and tour to theatres, rural touring venues and arts centres across the country. We have performed in the UK, France, Switzerland and Canada.

The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools. We believe in the power of physical comedy and silliness to talk about important issues of our times. The theatre we make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric.
