And Then Come The Nightjars – ****Time Out **** The Daily Telegraph **** The Evening Standard **** The Guardian
South Devon, 2001. Jeff is a vet with a problem. Michael is a cattle farmer who is a problem. The two men have a begrudging respect for each other and a blossoming friendship based on sharing a fag, a nip of whisky and boisterous banter. But when Foot and Mouth sweeps through the British countryside, throwing communities into chaos with the slaughter of thousands of cattle, Michael watches the shooting of his own beloved cows in grief stricken disbelief… he also watches his friend brandish the gun.
In turns heart-breaking and hilarious, And Then Come The Nightjars is both a tender portrait of male friendship and a requiem to rural life.
“A touching play of love and loss…savagely funny and sad… beautifully observed” The Guardian (on Theatre 503)
