Project Description

Shh! We Have A Plan

Based on the delightful Chris Haughton book of the same title, follow the journey of some madcap characters each of whom has a plan – they all want to capture a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! Sounds simple, but the quest becomes an obsession and the obsession becomes the absurd! Where will it all end? Join us as we follow the characters’ exploits, meet an elusive and magical little birdie and discover that perhaps freedom and kindness are more important than getting what you want at any cost!
