The Search for a Black-browed Albatross

Important information:

This play lightly touches on the loss of a parent which may be upsetting for some viewers.

Coat? Check. Tent? Check. A father’s lifelong ambition to complete? Check.

Charlie is about to embark on the journey that her late father never did. To find the one bird that had eluded him, to rekindle their lost relationship.

A beautiful, joyous, handmade adventure with puppetry, music, and a girl that just really wants to see a bird.

Winner of the NSDF Festgoer's Award, The Sunday Times Playwriting Award and The Buzz Goodbody Director Award.
