A dark comedy about foot-and-mouth disease by Fringe First winner Emily Jenkins.
"Jenkins’s play is much more than just a 1990s nostalgia trip. It’s a moving story of resilience, of changing landscapes, national trauma and, above all, friendship."The Stage
"At the heart of the play… is a profound sense of how rapidly England’s landscape has changed in the last quarter-century, and how powerless many ordinary people have felt in the face of those changes."The Scotsman
"This show is one of the best at the Festival."The Times
"This powerful new play asks what happens when our way of life is threatened by those who don’t understand it."The Edinburgh Reporter
"Bobby & Amy is a remarkable piece of writing and a remarkable production. Emily Jenkins evokes people, cultures, scenes, places, generations, atmospheres, characters with pithy poignancy, a sprinkling of well-chosen words summoning up a succession of vivid images. A single poetic phrase conjures a whole landscape; an acutely observed, sparely described detail creates a perfect vignette of a social gathering; the brutally colourful language of insult can strike with a jolt as hard as a bully’s fist."Daily Info

It's the end of the 90s: Take That, Tamagotchis and Pog swaps. When 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 faces a catastrophe that will change their home forever.
