"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)
Nothing and nobody will stop Roy Tunt from spotting his wild birds and today, 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 to welcome an elusive vagrant from the Asian Steppe, the rare and beautiful Sociable Plover. Roy sequesters himself away in a bird-spotter's hide on a stretch of flooded marshland. With a packed lunch and a framed photograph of his ex-wife for company, he watches and waits. But might he, perhaps, have other plans? And who is the mysterious stranger who appears from the marshes and decides to take refuge?
From the writer of Morecambe, presented by Lighted Fools in 2017, this is a wonderfully funny play with an intriguing twist.
