A story about friendship and finding out who you really are
Nuffield Southampton Theatres Laboratory Associates present the world premiere
Age recommendation: 14+
Written by Tamsin Daisy Rees
Directed by Emily Collins
Designed by Verity Johnson
Lighting by Dan Saggars
Sound by Annie May Fletcher
Produced by Holly Mitchell
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
