Overview

It’s the height of the summer, and Daisy’s fifteenth birthday. Trouble is brewing - in North London, someone’s been shot. There’s a curfew in place, school is suspended and the city is changing, but Daisy has an important delivery to make across town. When Morell offers her a ride in his uncle’s car, she sets off down a road from which there might be no turning back.
Set against the backdrop of the London riots, Burning Bird, questions the decisions we make and explores the freedoms we find when authority goes missing. Ideal for young people ages 13+ it was presented at the Union Theatre, London, in November 2012 by Synergy Theatre Project, a groundbreaking theatre company working with prisoners, ex-prisoners and young people at risk.
