Love, Lies and Taxidermy

DOI: 10.5040/9781784604240.00000002

An offbeat love story about Mr Tutti Frutti, a stuffed owl and the struggle to fit in.

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.

Alan Harris's play Love, Lies and Taxidermy was first produced by Paines Plough, Sherman Cymru and Theatr Clwyd in Paines Plough's pop-up theatre, Roundabout, at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, before touring.
