Where Do All The Dead Pigeons Go?

Where Do All The Dead Pigeons Go?

An ARC Stockton Production

Where Do All The Dead Pigeons Go?


Originally co-produced by ARC Stockton and Northern Stage, in association with Greyscale


Written and performed by Scott Turnbull

Directed and co-written by Ed Gaughan



Where do all the dead pigeons go? I could give you the answer right now... but it would ruin the show. Between you and me, I'm still not sure.


With felt-tip pens, and his ex-girlfriend's overhead projector, Scott Turnbull takes us on a journey through space and time. This frolic of cartoon and comic reason miraculously weaves science fiction, memoir, parable, fairy-tale and farce... it's weird, fast and inventive.


Pigeons in this show are fictional and bear no relevance to pigeons existing or dead.
