A hilarious new comedy about love among turkeys, chance encounters & fresh starts

It's nearly time for the last-ever annual Turkey Days Festival and the excitement in town is palpable. Sarah, a turkey farmer, has just left her husband and moved back home with her mother Gail who raises bees. Enter Ben, a 23-year-old virgin and an eager, athletic young grad student majoring in entomology, intent on studying the declines in the local bee population. A raucously funny play with a huge, honeyed heart.

"...hilarious but thoughtful comedy..." - Stage Door

Audience advisory: mature content, partial nudity

Running Time: approx. 2 hours, with one intermission

Bob Says:  While it’s obviously about “the birds and the bees and this thing called love”, I like the play because it’s set against the background of actual birds and bees (turkeys and bee colonies), and because it’s about several generations in the pursuit of love. People trying to negotiate their love life (and their sex life) are always hilarious because they’re always desperate to get it right – and there’s so much room for things to go oh-so-wrong!
