Full tour dates for And Then Come The Nightjars are now on sale.
South Devon, 2001. Jeff is a dairy vet with a problem. Michael is a cattle farmer - he is a problem. The two men have a begrudging respect for one another, usually expressed through a shared fag, a nip of whisky and some boisterous banter. But when Foot and Mouth sweeps across the UK countryside their friendship - and indeed their whole way of life – is thrown into question. Michael watches in disbelief as his cows are rounded up, and to his horror, it is Jeff brandishing the gun.
Tender, funny and full of love, And Then Come The Nightjars is a story of male friendship against the odds, and a tribute to vanishing ways of rural life.
Winner of the Theatre503 Playwriting Award 2014 and nominated for six Off West End Awards 2016, including Most Promising Playwright, And Then Come The Nightjars embarks on a national tour in September - October 2016.
★★★★ "intensely funny...a small gem of a play from a writer to watch" Daily Telegraph
★★★★ "a savagely funny and sad play directed with real delicacy" The Guardian
