Geezer Bird by Tash Desborough

A Wireless Theatre Original

45 mins

Erotophobe ladette Sammy (24) is unexpectedly thrown on-air under the mononym ‘Angelique’, where she naively takes on the persona of an audio dominatrix. 

Set in the late 1990s with ladette culture in full swing, and the pre #metoo assumption that all young women are obsessed with sex, this semi-autobiographical audio drama from Tash Desborough hits a zeitgeist nerve, and questions misogyny in the workplace and assumed attitudes on sex and sexiness.

All characters are fictional but events are based on real life.

Suitable for adult audiences 18+

Trigger warnings – Depiction and talk of experiencing indecent exposure, panic attacks, anxiety, sex addiction. 

Geezer Bird is both heartbreaking and chilling.”
