Mikron Theatre will bring Twitchers, Poppy Hollman’s new play with original live music celebrating all things birds, birders and the RSPB, to The Mill House in North Warnborough on July 18 at 7pm.
Springwatch is coming to the RSPB Shrikewing nature reserve. As we meet raucous rooks, booming bitterns and plenty of tits, we realise the birds of Shrikewing are its real stars. Can Jess take inspiration from the RSPB’s tenacious female founders and draw on its history of campaigning to save them? Can she find her own voice to raise a rallying cry for nature?
Playwright Poppy Hollman said: “It’s a joy to write for Mikron and I’m delighted to be part of their 51st year of touring. Twitchers is about the RSPB, Europe’s largest conservation charity, and their struggles to protect birds and wildlife since 1889.
“The play offers a fun swoop into the colourful world of birds and birdwatching. Our feathered friends are the real stars of the show; you’ll see them flirting, bickering and making their own indelible impression on the plot.”
The cast features Eddie Ahrens, Hannah Baker, Harvey Badger and Rachel Hammond.
Twitchers is directed by Marianne McNamara and designed by Celia Perkins, with music composed by Amal El-Sawad and arranged by Rebekah Hughes.
There is no reserved seating. No ticket is required – a ‘pay what you feel’ collection will be taken after the show.
