Firebird

By Phil Davies

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A searing thriller about the naivety of youth and how easily it can be exploited.

Tia's mouthy attitude and confident swagger mask the vulnerability in a fourteen-year-old girl whose tough start in life draws her to AJ. Older, good-looking and charismatic, he shows her a kindness that she's never known. Kindness that comes with a price…

Phil Davies' debut play Firebird premiered at Hampstead Downstairs, London, in 2015, in a production directed by Edward Hall, before transferring to the Trafalgar Studios in the West End in 2016.

Press Quotes

'Remarkably potent... what's remarkable about Davies's writing is how little it hectors and how lifelike it feels. It's angry, it's witty, it makes degradation vivid and infuriating'

The Times

'Short, sharp, and appropriately nasty… Davies' writing also brims with a fierce energy'

WhatsOnStage

'Blisteringly intense… unforgettable'

The Stage

'A must-see… Davies perfectly captures the complexities of human relationships'

Londonist

'Powerful and harrowing… [a] gripping and highly emotive drama'
