Early Birds
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The new play Early Birds, from the writers of Birds of a Feather, Maurice Gran and Laurence Marks, tells the incredible yet true story of the birth of one of the nations favourite sit-coms.

Early Birds starts with a chance encounter in a West End hotel, and ends with a show considered so saucy it was nearly cancelled two weeks into its run, and yet Birds of a Feather is about to enter its thirtieth year as a TV comedy classic.

Early Birds will be directed by Alexandra Sumner-Hughes. The professional cast will be comprised of members of the Q Productions Rep Company including Birds of a Feather actor, Charlie Quirke.

Alongside Birds of a Feather, writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran are perhaps best-known for their television classics Shine on Harvey Moon, The New Statesman and Goodnight Sweetheart. Theatre writing credits include Dreamboats and Petticoats, Save The Last Dance For Me and Dreamboats and Miniskirts.

Suitability: 12+.
