And Then Come the Nightjars (15)

Wednesday, September 13

Dir. Paul Robinson, UK, 2023, 83 mins. Cast. Nigel Hastings, David Fielder.

Shot entirely in Devon. Specifically on location at Meldon Farm, Okehampton, and on the hills nearby as well as the Village Hall in Meldon, Okehampton.

Adapted for the screen from Bea Roberts’ multi-award-winning stage play and set against the backdrop of the 2001 Foot and Mouth outbreak, And Then Come the Nightjars tells the heartwarming story of friendship and survival between a Devon farmer and the vet who’s assigned to cull his precious herd.

Nigel Hastings and David Fielder reprise their hugely successful on-stage roles as Jeff and Michael, with the play’s director Paul Robinson making his feature length film directorial debut.
