Little Birds

Inspired by Anais Nin collection of erotic stories, Little Birds is set in the famous 'international zone' of tangier.

About Little Birds

We arrive with New York heiress Lucy Savage (Juno Temple) fresh off the transatlantic steamer and ready for love and marriage in exotic climes. But when her husband Hugo (Hugh Skinner) does not receive her in the way she expected, she spins off into the surprising, diverse and degenerate world of Tangier in 1955. Period drama about an ingénue abroad this is not. Instead, Little Birds is very modern tale of a woman losing and then finding herself down a mesmerising rabbithole. What Lucy discovers is a world in flux, a country quivering on the cusp of independence, populated by a myriad of characters including a provocative dominatrix, Cherifa Lamor (Yumna Marwan) who particularly captures Lucy’s imagination.

A bold and subversive re-invention of melodrama for our times, Little Birds takes the audience and all our characters on a witty, moving and provocative journey towards freedom and independence.
