An award-winning dark comedy about foot-and-mouth disease by double Fringe First Award winner, Emily Jenkins.
It’s the late nineties. Take That, Tamagotchis, Dip Dabs, and Pog Swaps. When 13-year-old Bobby and Amy meet, hundreds of cows dot across the fields and the sun always shines. But when the cows begin to burn, Bobby and Amy’s sleepy Cotswold town is changed forever. Set amongst the devastation that hit farming communities in the late nineties, Bobby & Amy is a coming-of-age story exploring friendship, heartache and what happens when our way of life is threatened by those who don’t understand it.
An exhilarating 70-minute coming-of-age journey, with two actors playing 21 different characters. Bobby & Amy was a sell-out show at Edinburgh Fringe, where it was named Top Pick by The Stage, The Times, The Scotsman, WhatsOnStage and The Independent.
Bobby & Amy is a moving story of resilience, of changing landscapes, national trauma and, above all, friendship **** The Stage
