Birds and Bees

Birds and Bees

'Unimaginably funny, achingly moving, brilliantly realistic' ★★★★★ Drama and Theatre One click and it’s gone too far, far too fast. As explicit photos of the school’s ‘it’ couple go viral, and real-world consequences of online life spread, so do everyone’s opinions. Leilah is starting to wonder if her Instagram feels more like a burden than ‘living her best life’. Aarron is learning how to be a man online and it’s starting to feel toxic. Maisy’s not that into sex, thank you very much. So why’s everyone always talking about it? Billy’s queer and proud, accepted by their friends but ignored by the education system. They’re tired of feeling invisible. Can they break through the noise and make real change offline? Directed by Theatre Centre’s Artistic Director Rob Watt, Birds and Bees fuses Charlie Josephine’s fiery contemporary spoken word with the vibrant stylings of acclaimed sound designer XANA. “I wanted to embrace the messy nuances and present some sticky questions about sex education” - Charlie Josephine, Writer Created by Theatre Centre in association with Soho Theatre Suitable for 14+ Please note, Birds and Bees contains direct and indirect discussion around panic attacks and suicide, flashing images, as well as infrequent swear words. English subtitles available. Birds and Bees is available free for every state across the UK.
