    A story about friendship and finding out who you really are

    Kelsey (14) and Alice (13) have been friends for what feels like forever, they make each other belly laugh and share everything. But when Kelsey’s Grandad dies, their relationship changes. Now, Alice becomes Kelsey’s Birdwatching assistant (just like Kelsey was to her Grandad before) despite being less than interested by birding.

    Follow the journey of two best friends in this coming of age story that explores the messiness of growing up and growing out of what you used to love.

    Fledglings is spliced with Monologues, in which the girls talk to a camera about their thoughts and feelings.

    Free post-show Q&A Friday 18th Oct
