From Fringe First award-winner Emily Jenkins (Rainbow, Edinburgh Fringe; Cookies, Theatre Royal Haymarket) comes Bobby & Amy, a dark comedy about friendship, heartache and the repercussions of foot-and-mouth disease.  Starring Will Howard (The Archers, BBC Radio 4) and Kimberley Jarvis (Lear’s Daughters, Cambridge alumni Footfall Theatre), this powerful new play asks what happens when our way of life is threatened by those who don’t understand it.


It’s the late nineties: Take That, Tamogotchis, Dib Dabs and Pog Swaps.  When 13 year old Bobby and Amy meet, hundreds of cows dot the fields and the sun always shines.  But when foot-and-mouth disease hits the farming communities in rural England and the cows begin to burn, Bobby and Amy’s sleepy Cotswold town faces a catastrophe that will change their home forever.
