I don't think I've ever laughed so much in one hour. I've never seen a show where somebody taxidermies a pigeon, or sh*ts in a church, or wanks into a piece of fruit, all the while pretending he has a job in B&Q, but that's all just by the by.
Birdland is a warning on the perils of fame. That makes it very much a tale of our time but though the bold, exciting presentation from director Carrie Cracknell and the star casting of Andrew Scott catches the eye, this play doesn't really bring anything new to this well-worn subject.
