Birds and Bees 2000 × 770px

Birds and Bees is a new play by critically acclaimed writer Charlie Josephine (I, Joan, Shakespeare’s Globe) and a searing exploration of identity, consent, sex positivity, online safety and intersectionality.

“The whole system needs a reboot, refresh, restart. Revolutions’ possible, hear me share from the heart. See us youngers? Online scrolling, always visible. But the Truth is I feel invisible. The youth of today have got so much to say but no-one’s listening.”

Leilah is wondering if her Instagram is more of a burden than ‘living her best life’. Billy’s queer and proud but ignored by the education system; they’re tired of feeling invisible. Aarron is learning how to be a man online and it’s starting to feel toxic. And Maisy, well Maisy’s not that into sex, thank you very much.

Thrown together, these four confront their differences and realise their power to create change.

Written by Charlie Josephine
Directed by Rob Watt
