I mean, what does it all mean? Eh? Do you have any idea what it all means? At all?

That’s four pounds seventy.

 

A man, in a Hawaiian shirt, sucking Special Brew through a straw. A prostitute of indistinguishable age. A bouncer in black jacket and dicky bow. Taxi driver Jimmy Macneill has met them all. But despite spending his nights listening to confessions, fantasies, even the odd flirt, there is something he can’t speak of to anyone. Except his ex-wife. If only she would answer the phone.

 

Off West End Award Nominated Space Productions present Bluebird, the Royal Court debut from Olivier award winning playwright Simon Stephens (Fatherland, The Lyric / Frantic Assembly and Seawall, The Old Vic). A haunting modern classic, a celebration of forgiveness and a love letter to London on a summer night.

There will be a post show Q+A on the 2nd August with The Forgiveness Project and CELBS.

REVIEWS

Viscerally funny, and celebratory too; a love affair with language, with London, and with the messiness of being human
The Spy In The Stalls 4 STARS

If there’s a play that will give you hope for London in its current haze, that play is Bluebird.
The Play’s The Thing UK

A moving study of grief and guilt, imaginatively staged and set in a London we can all recognise
Blog of Theatre Things

Hard-hitting, bitingly written and with a cast that just won’t quit […] a love song to the nation’s capital that will break your heart
A Younger Theatre

Plenty of gut-wrenching emotion
The Upcoming

A deep well of humanism… Bluebird takes you on the ride of your life.
