LOVE
LIES AND TAXIDERMY

by Alan Harris

This is a boy meets girl story. Son of a Polish taxidermist meets daughter of a failing ice cream salesman at a medical research facility in Merthyr Tydfil. First date in Tesco and things are going well.

 

But it's difficult to fall in love when your parents need saving from themselves, their weird hobbies and the threat of a prison sentence.

 

An offbeat love story about Mr. Tutti Frutt, a stuffed owl and the struggle to fit in from writer Alan Harris (BBC Radio 4, National Theatre Wales, Sherman Cymru).
