The Birds and the Bees
By Mark Crawford with additional material by James McDermott
Directed by Peter Rowe
Starring Helen Lederer and Michael Starke
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’s 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!
This hilarious comedy romp has a heart as big as the laughs it brings. Starring comic genius, writer and actress Helen Lederer (Absolutely Fabulous, Bottom and French & Saunders) and Michael Starke, known and loved from his role as Sinbad in Brookside to TV’s The Royal and Benidorm and countless major leads on stage including Hairspray and Waitress.
