THE BIRDS AND THE BEES
A ROMANTIC COMEDY WITH A BIT OF BUZZ

Sarah, a turkey farmer, has just left her husband and moved back home with her mother, a beekeeper. They live across the road from Earl, a farmer who’s been keeping busy with a long list of ladies ever since his divorce. Things get interesting when Ben, an eager young grad student, arrives to study the declining bee population. This raucously funny new comedy tackles sex, love, science, family, and the artificial insemination of turkeys!
Gail used to be married to Frank, and Earl to Sheila. Then one day, Frank ran off with Sheila leaving Gail and Earl sitting alone on opposite sides of their concession road. Earl is trying to move on but Gail has given up on love and turned to beekeeping. When Gail’s turkey-farming daughter moves back home and a young man studying the decimation of the local bee population shows up, things really start to buzz!
This play is laugh out loud funny! You won’t want to miss it! It portrays adult situations and language…all in good fun and, of course, in the very best of taste!
