First Staged:
Derby Theatre Studio, 2014


By Laura Lomas

A cutting-edge monologue that throws light on the experience of a teenager in contemporary Britain, from one of the country's most exciting young playwrights.

It's four in the morning and Leah is waiting for her boyfriend to call. Over the course of a single night she tells us what it's like to be fourteen, fearless and full of love. But everything isn't what it seems, and as the sun comes up, Leah begins to unpick the true nature of her relationship.

Laura Lomas's play Bird was first presented by Root Theatre and Echo, on a tour of the UK, in 2014.
