    My Dadís A Birdman by David Almond, with music by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, was played at the Young Vic, London, from 25th November, 2010, to 1st January, 2011. It's a tale for five to eight-year-olds which tells of a Great Human Bird Competition. Will the dynamic father and daughter duo get a chance to fly, or will sums, dumplings and headmasters get in their way?
    Music for the "My Dad's A Birdman" play includes three new songs, "The dumpling song" (funny), "Wings and faith" (aspirational) and "Night song" (beautiful), and several pieces of music to accompany dialogue.
