Being afraid of heights isn’t such a big deal – unless you’re a bird! Meet Eddie, a mynah, who lives behind an abandoned old house with Matt the rat, his only friend. One day, Matt is captured by the big, black crow! What does Eddie have to do to save his best friend? Will he have the courage to do it?

Flutter, flap and fly with Eddie as he attempts the bravest rescue ever in the history of bird-kind! Watch the magic of theatre, music and puppetry unfold right before your eyes in this delightful performance.

Adapted from the children’s book The Bird Who Was Afraid of Heights, written by Farah Bagharib-Kaltz, illustrated by Eeshaun.
