Nick Downing EX ACC Kent & Essex Police

“‘When the Birds stop singing’. A brilliant and emotional portrayal of Simon’s life. The production covers challenging and often unseen topics of an physically and emotional abusive childhood, homophobic hate crime in its rawest form and same sex domestic abuse. All, sadly, remain common place in our society today. I applaud the team for addressing each of the topics in such a sensitive and non-sensationalist manner. I would remind anyone viewing that help is available if you have been affected by this play. You are not alone.” Nick Downing Former Assistant Chief Constable
