Important information:

This show contains strong language and adult themes.

A new dark comedy about foot-and-mouth disease by Fringe First award winner Emily Jenkins.

It's the late 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.

Bobby & Amy explores friendship and what happens when our way of life is threatened by those who don’t understand it.
