A Younger Theatre
From Simon Stephens, the award winning
The Curious Incident of the Dog in
the Night-Time, comes Bluebird.
Jimmy, a mini cab driver, over the course of one
night in London, exploring the city’s A-roads, back
alleys 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
