By Katherine Chandler 'You know what Ava means? Bird. That's what you are. You're a little bird.' Ava and Tash are up on a cliff, looking out at the flocking birds - and at their future. On the cusp of adulthood and about to leave the care home they've shared, the two friends road-test their impending freedom and living in the outside world. Ava must confront the mother she left behind. Tash will have to look for a new home. And both girls will go on living dangerously with the men who surround them. Raw, delicate and bold, Bird is a story of growing up outside a family but inside the fiercest of friendships. It was the winner of a Judges' Aware in the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and premiered at Sherman Theatre in 2016 before transferring to the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.
