A searing exploration into sex positivity, online safety and intersectionality, Birds and Bees is an enthralling play by renowned writer Charlie Josephine (I, Joan, Shakespeare’s Globe).
Having reached over 500 schools across the UK with online performances in 2020, Theatre Centre is proud to present their spring tour of Birds and Bees.
Uncovering the failings of the sex education systemin schools, this dynamic and poignant production has been developed in collaboration with Sheffield Theatres and will be touring to Sheffield, Scarborough and Plymouth.
One click and it’s gone too far, far too fast. As explicit photos of the school’s ‘it’ couple go viral, real-life consequences of online life start to spread-and so do everyone’s opinions. Leilah can’t help but feel her Instagram is more of a burden than ‘living her best life’. Billy is queer and proud but feels unseen by the education system; they’ve had enough of feeling invisible.
Aarron is still in the early stages of learning how to be a man online and it’s starting to become toxic. And Maisy, well Maisy’s not that into sex, thank you very much. Birds and Bees follows the narrative of four school peers as they recognise their differences and engage their own unique power and potential to spark change.
