Western Canada Theatre presents the comedy The Birds and the Bees from Jan. 25 to Feb. 3 at Sagebrush Theatre.
The Birds and The Bees blends beekeeping, turkey farming, and romance. By Canadian playwright Mark Crawford, it is co-produced with Thousand Islands Playhouse.
The Birds and the Bees brings back to the Sagebrush stage Nicola Lipman, who was last here in Driving Miss Daisy. Lipman plays Gail, a beekeeper who has been long divorced.
Her daughter, Sarah, is played by Naomi Wright, who played at WCT in both The Man Who Shot Chance Delaney and The Island of Bliss.
Sarah is a turkey farmer who has returned home after her recent divorce. Their already chaotic lives are further complicated by randy farming neighbour Earl, played by John Jarvis, the handsome but innocent Ben, played by Christopher Allen, a student researching collapsing bee populations, and the last ever Turkey Days Dance. Originally directed by Ashlie Corcoran at Thousand Islands Playhouse, the play is directed this time by WCT alumni Heather Cant.
