The Birds and The Bees tour dates and tickets

Sorry, no more tour dates are currently scheduled for this show!
Check back soon for new dates in the near future.

On Sarah’s East Anglian farm, the honeybees are dropping like flies – just like her love life. She hasn’t slept with anyone since her husband bolted years ago. Her daughter’s marriage is going bust just like her turkey farm. Neighbour Earl is fighting a losing battle with his sugar beet yield and his ‘no strings’ relationships.

Can bio-student Ben perk up the pollinators and give the turkeys a helping hand? Perhaps all they need is some local mead and the annual Turkey Day’s Dance to help them discover that the best way out of a crisis is to commit to those closest to you. Just don’t get stung!

Meet the cast!

Helen Lederer (Absolutely Fabulous, French and Saunders) will star as Sarah with Michael Starke (Brookside, The Royal) as Earl.

Helen Lederer said: “I am so looking forward to getting out on tour and channelling my middle aged ‘karma’ on stage with the fabulous Michael Starke. The Birds and the Bees is not only very funny, it is about ‘awakenings’ – It’s been worth the wait”

Michael Starke added: “The Birds and the Bees is a Valentine to nature in all its glory! I’m delighted to be part of this magnificent company and to be touring with the fantastic Helen Lederer and friends old and new”.

Full casting for the tour is to be announced.

The production first premiered in 2022 at New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, directed by the venue’s Artistic Director Peter Rowe. Set & costume design is by Dawn Allsopp with lighting from Richard G Jones. The Casting Director is Debbie O’Brien.
