One of BBC TV’s most popular and fondly remembered sitcoms, Birds of a Feather ran for almost 10 years until 1998. Set in Chigwell, it chronicled the misadventures of Sharon Theodopolopoudos and Tracy Stubbs (Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson) and their man-eating neighbour, Dorien Green (Lesley Joseph).

Pauline Quirke can currently be seen in ITV1’s Emmerdale as Hazel Rhodes, she is also well known for her portrayal of Olive Martin in the award winning drama The Sculptress, Down to Earth, Cold Blood and Missing. In 2008 Pauline Quirke celebrated 40 years in the entertainment business and launched the hugely successful Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts, with over 30 academies across the United Kingdom they bring everything that Pauline has learned and loved about the industry to a whole new generation.

Both Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph have performed in The Vagina Monologues. A regular guest panelist on ITV1’s Loose Women, Linda’s theatre credits also include Grumpy Old Women Live. Lesley’s theatre credits also include Calendar Girls, Hot Flush, Humble Boy and Annie.

Join Pauline, Linda and Lesley as they recreate their adored characters from BIRDS OF A FEATHER on stage in a brand new show created especially for the theatre by The Comedy Theatre Company, producers of the highly successful tour of Victoria Wood’s dinnerladies and Keeping Up Appearances.
