Description

In Margate, an isolated teenager forms a band and finds her voice with the help of a gang of exotic birds. A new musical about finding your flock and ruffling feathers, Parakeet is a feast for the ears, eyes and heart told through irresistible song, poetry and electronic sounds. Discover the new spirit of punk: punk with empathy. Written by Brigitte Aphrodite with music by Quiet Boy. 'Imagine the Mighty Boosh crossed with the best episode of Girls. Prepare to cry and laugh several times over. You’ll leave a better person' (Elle for My Beautiful Black Dog).
