Angry Bairds was founded by MA Screenwriting and Theatre graduates Nazish and Sophie. They like to provoke an audience, entice strangers to talk and explore the uncomfortable through theatre, film or immersive pop-up experiences like EAT and the upcoming refugee experience WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE 2017.

At the core of their writing is a strong female voice, a societal ill, a pop at the media and maybe the odd reference to food.

It received five stars and was sold out at both the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013 and the Vault Festival 2014. Her upcoming play DEADLY DIALOGUES explores the different radicalisation processes through a range of highly charged journeys.
