Jo Tomalin talks to Samantha Miles (Writer and Performer) and Simon Panay (Director) about developing a devised and compact family show – to tour on a low budget and The Search for a Black-Browed Albatross, produced by their company The Backpack Ensemble.
“Coat? Check. Tent? Check. A father’s lifelong ambition to complete? Check. Charlie is about to embark on the journey that her late father never did. To find the one bird that had eluded him, to rekindle their lost relationship. A beautiful, joyous, handmade adventure with puppetry, music and a girl that just really wants to see a bird. Winner of the NSDF Festgoer’s Award, The Sunday Times Playwriting Award and The Buzz Goodbody Director Award.”
