THE STORY: Ever since Alexis moved in with her boyfriend, her pet parrot has developed a problem. What’s worse, the girl she’s been illicitly flirting with just showed up uninvited to their dinner party. And she might have bedbugs. And a secret past. PLUCKER is an old-school farce about a new generation dealing with the anxieties of commitment and co-habitation.
“[PLUCKER] has an element of farce…but this is also a very serious look at contemporary attitudes to relationships through a group of thirty-year-olds who are beginning to feel it is time to settle down.” —British Theatre Guide.

“Smith’s script manages to balance the more outright comedic moments of the night…with the serious reflection.” —Views From The Cheap Seats.
