Tia’s mouthy attitude and confident swagger hide a vulnerable teenager whose tough start in life dangerously draws her to AJ. Older, good-looking and charismatic, AJ shows her a kindness that she’s never known. Kindness that comes with a price…

Hampstead’s Artistic Director Edward Hall directs his first Downstairs production, Phil Davies’ debut play, a searing new thriller about how the naivety of youth is open to exploitation.

Edward Hall has directed some of Hampstead’s biggest hits including the Olivier Award winning musical Sunny AfternoonChariots of Fire (both of which transferred to the West End) and Wonderland.

Firebird has been kindly supported by Simon and Midge Palley.

Running time is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes with no interval.

Please note that Firebird contains themes of an adult nature.
