Upcoming Show

A hilarious comedy.

Barbara’s husband, Jack is missing from the family farm. When Jack finally returns he is in a delusional state,  suffering from Agriphobia (a fear of agriculture) and convinced he is a Japanese soldier holding out on an island after World War 2.

Barbara enlists the help of the only people she can trust, the village idiot, a new vet and her daughter.
How will they restore Jack’s mind without the help of a medical professional or common sense.
