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.  

A feast for the eyes, ears and heart, Parakeet features punk poetry, sparkly-sharp high fashion, wild dance moves and good old fashioned storytelling.

Parakeet is will be performed at this years Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with Paines Plough Roundabout at Summerhall, 31 July - 25 August at 17:05.
