100-Word Fringe: “Birdhouse” at Assembly George’s Square

BirdhouseA sort of side-vignette to Hitchcock’s avian nightmare, Birdhouse places four women of steadily decreasing sanity in a movie theatre under attack by our flighty friends. Less a piece of plotting and character than mood and whimsy, Jammy Voo productions bring a sense of precision to Birdhouse that pays dividends – with riotous laughter throughout, and audience members leaning ever closer to breathe in the sense of madness. Mixing puppetry, shadow-play, live music and bonkers characterisations, the female ensemble (and male accompanist) deliver an enthralling piece of theatre that leaves a mark but remains impossible to describe. An absolute hoot.

Birdhouse is playing at Assembly George’s Square until August 25th (not 19th).

Tickets: £12 (£11)
