Ultimo NSW 2007

Thursday 16 February from 7:30pm to 9pm


General Admission: $10

Everything’s on the table.

Sometimes the longest friendships are the most complicated ones. Warren and Emily have been best friends since high school, suffering together through shitty teachers, coming out and failed relationships. Since Warren’s transition, it’s become obvious that there are lots of things they’re not saying to each other. In one conversation at a pub, it all comes out.

Back to Birdy explores the relationship between trans men and queer women, issuing a call for empathy and understanding in our own backyard.

Join us for a staged reading of Back to Birdy – the first public showing of this new play and a taster of what’s to come.

Developed through Fruit Box Theatre’s RIPE Development Program and presented during Sydney WorldPride in association with bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company.
