“You hardly ever see ʻem, only hear them.They fly silent. Itʼs bad luck is Nightjars…”
South Devon, 2001. Local dairy vet Jeff and curmudgeonly farmer Michael are old friends, united by their love of the Devonshire countryside and Jeff’s prize collection of cows. But when the Foot and Mouth pandemic strikes the countryside their friendship – and the resilience of the whole community – is tested to its limits. Bea Roberts’ award-winning play is a touching story of male friendship and a requiem for rural England.
