Herding Cats

By Lucinda Coxon

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A chillingly funny play that freeze-frames a generation negotiating intimacy and independence in the twenty-first century.

Meeting the demands of twenty-first-century life is as impossible as herding cats for Justine, Michael and Saddo.

Justine has an infuriating new boss; Michael chats to strangers for a living; Saddo is one of them. All three are living a comic fiction in an attempt to avoid the facts. And now Christmas is coming... ready or not.

Lucinda Coxon's play Herding Cats was first staged at the Ustinov Theatre, Bath, in 2010.

Press Quotes

'The polished black shards of humour and ripples of queasy horror make for a compelling cackle into the void'

Time Out

'Lucinda Coxon's brutal but icily funny three-hander is the dramatic equivalent of a triple shot of something bitter and delicious... fine theatre'

Evening Standard

'Unforgettable'

The Times

'A cool gaze on the disconnectedness of contemporary life which lets nobody off the hook... So brutal, you almost forget to breathe'
