THE WORLD WITHOUT BIRDS: A MUSICAL FABLE

by Christine Croyden

When the Queen of the Birds meets two young COCKtails at the theatre she realises she’s about to fall from her perch. Together with her younger self, a chirpy songbird and notorious party girl, she embarks on a wild musical ride from Weimer cabaret to disco and back again.

The World without Birds is an intelligent, vivacious and thoroughly charming contemporary parable, which gleefully celebrates the tenacity and resilience necessary to survive in a fierce and ruthless world.’ AussieTheatre.com
