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. 'Exceptional' (Sunday Times). 'Delightful' (Mark Shenton). 'Turns the mundane into the magical' (Noises Off).
