a new dark comedy about foot-and-mouth disease by FRinge First winner Emily Jenkins

It's the late nineties, Take That, Tamagotchis, Dip Dabs, and Pog Swaps. When 13 year old 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.

Set amongst the devastation that hit farming communities in the late nineties; Bobby & Amy explores friendship, heartache, and what happens when our way of life is threatened by those who don’t understand it.
