They’ve been tasked by the Ministry to conduct a study of the bird population. With only the island’s authoritarian leaseholder and his niece for company, they find themselves drawn to the wildness of the island, igniting growing tensions and repressed passions. Blurring the line between fantasy and reality, Greig’s poetic, funny, and politically charged play explores a society on the edge of immense change.
A truly captivating production, authentically staged and beautifully performed
For anything else I may say about this piece, my one certainty is that is was absolutely beautiful – both physically and emotionally
An underpowered revival
A powerful drama brought to life by an outstanding cast
