The Birds and the Bees at the Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge

The Birds and The Bees

A Courtship Comedy
By Mark Crawford

May 23 to June 10, 2018

Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge

(formerly Dunfield Theatre Cambridge)

This winning courtship comedy about chance encounters and fresh starts is a racy recipe for relentless laughter.

Sarah, a turkey farmer, has just left her husband and moved back home with her mother Gail, a long-divorced beekeeper who drowns her loneliness in the honey business. Both women are struggling to put their lives back in order when their hive is frequented by Ben, a strapping young grad student intent on studying the decline of the local bee population.

Throw in a meddlesome neighbour, a little internet dating, and a pair of tickets to the last-ever Turkey Days Dance, and love, lust and poultry come together in a raucously funny comedy with a huge, honeyed heart.
