Yellow Bird Chase

by Liars & Believers

A bumbling maintenance crew finds a magical yellow bird, and the mad chase begins. Racing over land, across the sea, and through the air, battling pirates and monsters, how far will our heroes go… without ever leaving the storage room? Leap into a world of imagination!

Bring the whole family down to Gloucester Stage to join Liars & Believers on an adventure of masks, puppets, and gibberish. This delightful romp was a smash hit at  the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is fully accessible to the Deaf and hard of hearing community, as well as to non-english speakers.

Yellow Bird Chase is appropriate for ages 2+ and is fully accessible to Deaf and hard of hearing community as well as non-English speakers.

50 min with no intermission
