BREC PRESENTS Songbird by Shakara Walley
A Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company production

Warnings: Contains coarse language and adult themes.
Age Recommendation: Recommended for ages 13+

An intimate tale of heartbreak, forgiveness, shared memories and sweet melodies.

Songbird is a story about a young couple, Leon & Brooke, who parted ways following the death of Brooke’s brother, Michael. Michael, Brooke and Leon grew up together and have been best friends their entire lives. They were inseparable until Michael’s untimely death drove Brooke and Leon apart.
After five years, Leon wants to reconnect with Brooke and find out why Michael died. Does he really want to know the truth behind the death? Will he understand why reconciliation with Brooke may be too difficult, or will their shared memories & love of music allow forgiveness to triumph over the ever-aching sadness they both share?
