The Birds & the Bees follows Sarah, a turkey farmer, who has split up with her husband and moved in with her mom, Gail, a beekeeper. Add in Earl, the flirty neighbour, and Ben, an eager young graduate student, and you have the perfect breeding ground for unlikely attractions. Set in adjoining bedrooms, The Birds & the Bees is a Canadian comedy about love, lust, beekeeping, and the artificial insemination of turkeys.
Artistic Director Ashlie Corcoran says, “I love this big-hearted, silly, modern—and progressive—sex farce, where the older characters get to have as much fun—or more—than their younger counterparts. But, this piece is also much more than frolicking fun. It also plays with generational differences and the way those differences are revealed in issues of environmentalism, economics, sexuality, and “good morals.” Lauren Taylor is the perfect director—with her big heart, sense of humour, and fine attention to detail—to bring a new production to life!”
Director Lauren Taylor adds, “I am super excited to be working on this hilarious Canadian play about beekeeping, farming, family, and new beginnings with this incredible cast of well-loved actors. I think this will definitely appeal to the urban beekeeper in your life, anyone who’s been on a farm, or anyone looking for a belly laugh this fall! The design team working on the show are already in stitches just planning for the production, especially as it involves having to research sex music!”
