M6 Theatre’s enchanting production Nest to take flight on UK tour

M6 Theatre’s acclaimed production Nest is set to captivate audiences on a UK tour.

The show, featuring shadow puppetry, original songs, and clowning, follows Birtle and Piper, two birds and their precious eggs, who make their home in the last tree standing in the city. As they try to provide for their eggs, their nest becomes filled with the clutter they find in the human world below.

Nest runs for approximately 45 minutes and is suitable for ages 3 to 7. The show’s talented cast, led by Cynthia Emeagi and Emily Spowage, brings this heartwarming and thought-provoking tale to life, reminding us of the importance of cherishing our world and the creatures we share it with.

The tour runs from 16 September – 3 November 2023. 

Artistic Director, writer and director Gilly Baskeyfield said: “We always aim to create work which touches the hearts and minds of all ages and we’ve been overjoyed by the response to the show so far.

“Audiences have been deeply moved by the care and affection that the birds show each other, and their eggs, with grown-ups particularly relating to Birtle and Piper’s need to do the very best that they can for their offspring. The children have loved the movement, the comedy and the oversized props but most of all, they really, really care about those eggs!”
