Bird


and other monologues for young women


Laura Lomas


Nick Hern Books

“Potent… [a] beautifully crafted monologue with rich theatrical texture” —The Stage on Bird

Three hard-hitting, distinctive monologues for young female actors, from one of the country's most exciting young playwrights.

Bird is a cutting-edge monologue that throws light on the experience of a teenager in contemporary Britain.

It’s four in the morning and Leah is waiting for her boyfriend to call. Over the course of a single night she tells us what it’s like to be fourteen, fearless and full of love. But everything isn’t what it seems, and as the sun comes up, Leah begins to unpick the true nature of her relationship.

Bird was first presented by Root Theatre and Echo, on a tour of the UK, in 2014.

This edition also includes the monologues Gypsy Girl and Where I'm From. 

Laura Lomas is a playwright whose plays include Bird (Root Theatre and Echo); Blister (Paines Pough/Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama); Open Heart Surgery (Theatre Uncut); Come to Where I'm From (Paines Plough); Some Machine (Paines Plough/Rose Bruford); The Island (Nottingham Playhouse/Det Norske Oslo); Us Like Gods (Hampstead, Heat and Light); Gypsy Girl (Paines Plough Later at Soho) and Wasteland (New Perspectives/Derby Theatre; shortlisted for the Brian Way Award).
