Sarah, a turkey farmer, has just left her husband and moved back home to live with her mother Gail. Gail's a beekeeper and she has other things to worry about - like why her honeybees are dropping dead. Then there's Earl: Gail's neighbour, farm tenant, and the ex-husband of Gail's ex-husband's new wife. And then there's Ben: an athletic 23-year-old master’s student, commuting to Gail’s farm to study the declining bee populations. Set in two adjoining bedrooms on a modern Canadian farm, the play tackles sex, love, science, family, and the artificial insemination of turkeys.
