Suitable for ages 9+ The Vultures’ Song is a story of loss, survival and reconciliation. It follows a young girl’s journey to safety as she experiences the consequences of a land divided. A comical committee of inquisitive vultures narrate the story, poking fun whilst they loiter, waiting to clean up.
The audience joins a determined and brave young girl on her epic and transformative journey. A myriad of characters are played by four outstanding and versatile actors, including Leeds-based Simone Lewis and Richard Priestley. The play is presented by Leeds-based Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah, and written by award-winning playwright Mike Kenny who is best known for his adaptation of The Railway Children incorporating live locomotive engines, originally shown in York.
“I thought the performance was fantastic because it was engaging and explored some really interesting issues.” Young audience member
“It really stood out as a very unique and special performance… It was better than we expected – exceptional!” Teacher attending performance
