'And Then Come The Nightjars'

Not only a tender, finely observed portrait of male friendship, but also a stirring requiem for the vanishing dignity of rural England” The Evening Standard…

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 then the skies turn dark with the greasy smoke of hundreds of pyres as foot and mouth sweeps through the British countryside, throwing communities across the country into incredulous chaos.

Michael watches, in grief stricken disbelief, the slaughter of his ‘girls’. He also watches his friend brandish the gun. After the smoke has cleared and the blame laid to rest, the two men squabble, dance, philosophise, dream, laugh and plans as the countryside they used to know slips through theirs fingers, rapidly turning into a property developers’ dream.

And Then Comes The Nightjars is a searing portrait of what happens to a community, an industry, a landscape, a way of life, when change, uninvited, knocks at the door.

This production is followed by a 20 minute question and answer session in the Bar.
