There Is A Lot of Buzz Around Drayton Entertainment’s Production of The Birds and The Bees


Mating Season Makes for Strange Bedfellows

Set in a rural farming community during their Turkey Days celebration The Birds and The Bees tackles everything from actual birds and bees and their habits to modern day mating amongst members of the local community. During the Media Night Opening of The Birds and The Bees at Hamilton Family Theatre in Cambridge (formally the Dunfield Theatre), this comedic play had the audience in stiches with a side of shock and awe. It had several plot twists as characters wove their way through new situations from the beginning to end of this production.  It dealt with Mother-Daughter relationships, infertility, divorce, casual sex and friends with benefits or as referred to in this setting “No Strings Attached” scenarios. All of these subjects are discussed under the roof of an apiarist as she takes a retrospective look at her past, due to her newly separated daughter moving in. The daughter has nowhere else to go after leaving her turkey farm because of marriage troubles and sets the house a stir when she arrives.  When a young, innocent, researcher and neighbour, with a little too much testosterone, are added to the mix things do not go as smooth as honey at this beekeeper’s household. Perhaps this is what nature intended all along.  By the end of the production you are a little more educated when it comes to all meanings of “The Bird and The Bees”


38-year-old Sarah has left her husband and moved back home to live with her mother Gail until she sorts out her life. Despite the fact that she’s a divorcée of twenty years herself, Gail isn’t exactly providing the compassion that Sarah needs. An avid beekeeper, Gail has other things on her mind – like wondering why her honeybees are dropping dead all of a sudden.

PLEASE NOTE: This play contains mature themes and mild nudity
