The foot and mouth epidemic that ripped through farms up and down the land in 2001 serves as the devastating background to a critically acclaimed play touring rural Scottish venues in April.
Penned by exciting young writer Bea Roberts, And Then Come the Nightjars is performed at the Eastgate Theatre on 12 April. Set in South Devon just as Foot and Mouth takes hold, the play follows Jeff, a dairy vet with a problem and Michael, a cattle farmer, who is a problem.
