    'What’s he called? 'Who?' 'The pirate, the one like a door with wings?' 'The Great Skua. Or to give him his full patronymic - Stercorarius Skua.' 'What can the other birds do to stop him?' 'Not much. Feed in big groups; stay near their young. Keep their heads down and hope he picks on someone else.'

    Winner of the John Kinsella/Tracy Ryan ‘Other’ Prize, Kind is developed with the support of the Royal Shakespeare Company Literary Department. New writing, physical theatre and puppetry combine to tell the story of Skildir, a young woman trapped in an abusive relationship, and Sùlair, an outsider whose love of sea-birds has drawn him to a remote island community.

    Kind is Isobel Cohen’s first foray into playwriting, and is presented at the Fringe by an team of talented creatives and performers, after a critically acclaimed Cambridge run in 2012.

    “[Cohen is] a rising star … a genuinely exciting talent [who] deserves to have Arts Council budgets thrown at her.’ Scotland on Sunday.

    “We were perched like birds, intense and waiting for characters edging closer and closer to a precipice.” Varsity

    “Without doubt the most delicately enacted and directed play thus far in Michaelmas.” TCS

    “Remarkable and beautiful” (Michael Brazier) Shortlisted for NSDF 2013
