Current Productions, Touring Programme
About This Project

Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah are pleased to present The Vultures’ Song – a new play from award-winning children’s playwright Mike Kenny.

The Vultures’ Song draws on the events surrounding the Partition of India in 1947. It’s a story of loss, survival and reconciliation, highlighting children’s coping mechanisms in response to challenging or traumatic experiences. This play, marking the 70th  anniversary of Partition, has been specially commissioned to help schools address the SMSC agenda and provide a resource for teachers helping children transition to high school.

This new production is combined with exciting digital resources, using C & T Theatre’s Prospero technology to create online interactive dramas, designed to provide a comprehensive follow-up classroom resource for teachers.


  • Touring to high schools and primary schools April to June 2018
  • Suitable for Y5-Y9
  • Audience Size up to 150
  • National Curriculum links: inference, prediction, recognising themes and comparing characters
  • SMSC links: understanding consequences of actions, making connections in learning, respect for others

The Vultures’ Song is the basis of a primary schools research project in advance of the main tour. We are inviting expressions of interest from Leeds primary schools. More details
