Mixing theatre, story-telling, riveting dance and powerful music, The Last Curlew brings to the stage the pioneering environmental novel by the Canadian naturalist Fred Bodsworth - The Last of the Curlews. This timeless and beautiful tale traces the journey of a lone male Eskimo Curlew, one of the last of its kind, on that critically endangered bird's astonishing 14,000 km migration.

With haunting music by Ralph Vaughan-Williams and Alexina Louie, this, the only stage adaptation of Bodsworth's career-defining work, has the blessing of his children and has been warmly welcomed by the naturalist and birding community across Canada.
