Parakeet is an eco-punk, genre crossing, status quo defying musical about nature, friendship and fighting for what you believe in. An explosive new piece of gig-theatre brought to you by the creative team behind the critically-acclaimed My Beautiful Black Dog.
A young queer girl is re-located from London to Margate. The only thing she recognises are the bright green Parakeets. The show follows her as she forms a band, finds her voice and takes her space, ultimately learning that “empathy is the new punk”.
Proudly made in Margate, the show brings together some of the best local talent including Brigitte Aphrodite, Quiet Boy and Alex Nobel.
Parakeet was performed at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with Paines Plough Roundabout at Summerhall. The next performance is at The Gulbenkian, Canterbury on December 5th, 2019.
