Burning BirdJohn Donnelly
Sometimes there's no turning back...
Set against the backdrop of the London riots, Burning Bird questions the decisions we make and explores the freedoms we find when authority goes missing.
It’s the height of the summer, and Daisy’s fifteenth birthday. Trouble is brewing - in North London, someone’s been shot. There’s a curfew in place, school is suspended and the city is changing, but Daisy has an important delivery to make across town. When Morell offers her a ride in his uncle’s car, she sets off down a road from which there might be no turning back.
Burning Bird origionally premiered at the Unicorn Theatre in November 2012, by Synergy Theatre Project, a groundbreaking theatre company working with prisoners, ex-prisoners and young people at risk.
