Director: Margarita Papadopoulou

This revival of an early work from Olivier Award winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time), Bluebird follows Jimmy, a mini cab driver, over the course of one night in London, exploring the city’s roads and the lives that dwell around them. Jimmy listens as his ‘fares’ tell their individual stories in the back of his Nissan. He hears from a father mourning the murder of his daughter, a bouncer’s memory of a violent night at his club, a disillusioned engineer of London’s underground, as well as Jimmy’s estranged wife Claire. Because as it turns out, Jimmy’s own is the darkest story of all.

This is an audio performance and you will receive a link 24 hours before the booked performance date. The broadcast platform is YouTube for which you do not need to have an account. You simply need to click the link to listen via your phone, computer, web-enabled TV, or other device. You should use the link only at the time and date specified. If you log in early you may need to try again at the exact performance time. Do not worry if you miss the start, as you will be able to re-wind to the beginning and listen to the whole performance. You can listen on the performance date booked, but the link you receive will not work on any other day. You may receive other emails confirming your booking, but only the email from the West Bridgford Dramatic Society will contain the valid link for your show.
