Info

On Sarah’s Norfolk farm the bees are dropping like flies. Her husband ran off over twenty years ago and she hasn’t slept with anyone since, her middle aged daughter Sarah’s marriage is going up in smoke, her neighbour Earl who has a string of relationships that all come with no strings attached, complains that his sugar beet yield is struggling now pesticides are banned, then along on his bike comes city-dwelling student Ben, whose mission to lose his virginity has been suspended during lockdown, to study the poorly pollinators. On Sarah’s Turkey farm the birds have been bred to a state where they can’t mate without artificial assistance, but at the annual Turkey Days Dance, fuelled with jars of locally brewed mead, these four discover that they have no such problem.

Set against a background of ecological anxiety, this contemporary comedy of sexual manners and family relationships has a heart as big as the laughs it brings. And as the consequences of that momentous night unfold all four discover that the best route out of the surrounding sense of crisis is to commit to those closest to you – strings and all.
