Featuring puppetry, playful interaction, and original sound design, Bird Nest Billy is a magical adventure for 3-7 year olds and their families.
Billy is a little boy with a big brother called Bo. Billy and Bo both have big hair. Big curly bird nest hair. Billy and Bo are best of friends. They play together: building, racing, dancing, pretending. Bo is bigger and sometimes too bossy. Billy is smaller and sometimes too excited. But they are always the best of brothers.
One day Bo gets a haircut. One day Bo starts going to school.
Billy plays on his own, but It isn’t the same. Billy misses his big brother all day long. But then… out of Billy’s bird nest hair chirps a little bird. The little bird grants Billy 3 wishes.
Bird Nest Billy is funded by Arts Council England and is currently in development with support from Barnsley Civic, Arc Stockton and Square Chapel. Billy will head out on tour in 2018.
Watch this space- it’s going to be a curl-ossal adventure!!
