Theatre Centre production of Charlie Josephine’s Birds and Bees to stream on Soho Theatre On Demand from 8 March

The film will be available from Monday 8th till Sunday 28th March 2021

Theatre Centre will release a digital adaptation of new play Birds and Bees by Charlie Josephine (Pops, Edinburgh Fringe 2019) for a limited time via Soho Theatre On Demand, from Monday 8th to Sunday 28th March.

Directed by Theatre Centre’s Artistic Director Rob Watt, Birds and Bees fuses Charlie Josephine’s fiery contemporary spoken word with the vibrant stylings of acclaimed sound designer Xana. The production interrogates the complexities of teenage relationships in the digital age, igniting discussions about modern relationships, gender identity and sex education for young audiences.

Birds and Bees has been developed with secondary school students in Years 10 and 11 and their teachers. Providing an important piece of contemporary work that can help to deliver the current Drama and RSE curriculum, teachers are already recognising the output as an invaluable learning tool that addresses relationship challenges in an authentic and relatable way.

Theatre Centre will also release Birds and Bees free to UK state secondary schools, providing a high-quality blended learning resource. For more info head over here.
