The bird is back!

Previewing at Norwich Arts Centre – 16th July and Colchester Arts Centre – 24th July, Rita Grebe flies to Edinburgh to appear at Summerhall (a turn of last century veterinary school), kicking off 2nd August for a full run (playing on even numbered days) in their aptly named Demonstration Room.

Birdwatchers’ Wives is an Escalator East to Edinburgh show, supported with funding from the Arts Council of England. Metal is giving Rita a Time and Space Residency; Mem Morrison is preening the dramaturgy. Rita is in a right old flap as she’s captive at the moment but eager to run wild and you know that beak of hers gets sharper…

It seems like a lifetime ago (end of 2012) since I left my position as an academic to roam around the wilds of performance art and comedy. Rita and I are so excited to be going to Edinburgh (understatement!) – please come and have a great time with her at one of the previews at Colchester or Norwich, or say hi at the Fringe Festival.  Spread the word, she’ll be tweeting obvs  @ritagrebe and news will be released  on www.facebook.com/ritagrebe.
