The Sociable Plover

Nothing and nobody will stop Roy Tunt from spotting his wild birds and today, a stormy December morning on England's desolate east coast, he pursues a very special mission. With one more tick in his dog-eared notebook, Roy will have recorded all 567 species on the British List. The prevailing conditions are ideal and the time is perfect to welcome an elusive vagrant from the Asian Steppe, the rare and beautiful Sociable Plover. This is a wonderfully funny play with an intriguing twist.

'This quirky two-hander has real charm...there is as much humour as pathos to be found in Tim Whitnall's tightly written script.' - TIME OUT


Performed by: David Hemsley-Brown and Nick Lund
