The Birds and the Bees

Author(s): Mark Crawford with additional material by James McDermott
Company: New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich, Norwich Theatre and Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds

On Sarah’s East Anglian farm, the honeybees are dropping like flies—just like her love life. She hasn’t slept with anyone since her husband bolted years ago.

Her daughter’s marriage is going bust just like her turkey farm. Neighbour Earl is fighting a losing battle with his sugar beet yield and his ‘no strings’ relationships.

Can bio-student Ben perk up the pollinators and give the turkeys a helping hand? Perhaps all they need is some local mead and the annual Turkey Day’s Dance to help them discover that the best way out of a crisis is to commit to those closest to you. Just don’t get stung!
