Exclusive Margate performance of Parakeet at Olby’s Soul Cafe

Parakeet lands in Margate

Brigitte Aphrodite and Quiet Boy’s new show Parakeet is soaring back to Margate for an exclusive homecoming performance following a run at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The tale is set in Margate where an isolated teenager forms a band and finds her voice with the help of a gang of exotic birds. Dust, a lively, offbeat 17-year-old from Thanet, and Tam, a musically gifted Eritrean refugee facing an uncertain future, take our girl under their wings. Together they are The Parakeets.

Parakeet is a genre-crossing musical about finding your flock and ruffling feathers told through song, punk poetry, electronic sounds and cutting edge fashion.

In a world full of uncertainties, only one thing is for sure: it’s time to discover the new spirit of punk, a gentler punk – punk with empathy.

See Parakeet on Friday (December 6), 6.30pm-9pm, at Olby’s Soul Café, 3-5 King Street, Margate.

Tickets are £6 + booking fee in advance. This is a 14+ event, under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

The show is presented by Boundless Theatre andMargate’s Boom Shakalaka Productions, headed up by  Beth Clayton and radio DJ Gemma Cairney, as part of the Margate Now festival linked to the Turner Prize.
