The Nonsense Birds Theatre Company

SUMMARY

Scroungers is a highly charged physical theatre piece providing a gritty, Utopian insight into increasingly turbulent perspectives on the benefits culture. Written and performed by The Nonsense Birds, a new, 4 person, all female theatre company, committed to fresh and adventurous theatre based around difficult and topical current issues.

Scroungers presents a society where any person whose economic status falls below a given threshold, is taken away to live in ‘The Street’: A manufactured and controlled environment where they are looked after by ‘The Company’. Is life really better being looked after in ‘The Street’? Is there ever really an escape? Does anybody really want them back?
