From one of the greatest comedic writers of a generation comes a story of love, faith and taxidermy.
‘Three mighty obstacles threaten the burgeoning love of childhood sweethearts Timothy Pickering and Naomi Walls. They are Steven Venables, a dead curlew and God.’
1978: Two lovers perch precariously on the cusp of adulthood. Timothy’s father decides it’s time for him to take on the family taxidermy business; while Naomi dreams of a career on stage. Across the decades their lives continue to interweave, and occasionally cross – bound by the pull of intoxicating first love. But will their destinies ultimately unite them?
Nobbs moves his exceptional comic talent to a new-found depth. Memorable and moving, a tale of love won and love lost. You will never look at the art of taxidermy in the same way again.

My sister gave me this number for those who are thinking about commiting suicide. 1-800-273-TALK or 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-273-8255 or 1-800-784--2433) i will pray for you every day. Dont give up. Suicide is something that should be taken very seriously. Tell someone you trust, a responsible adult. If nothing else go to the police and tell them your situation. The numbers above should help. Good luck and we are praying for you. ( hugs )
