Human Animals

By Stef Smith

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

In the overcrowded city, nature is getting out of control. The mice are scratching between walls, the pigeons are diseased and the foxes are beginning to rule the streets. The problem is growing. It's contagious. It has to be stopped, before it's too late.

Stef Smith's play Human Animals premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in May 2016, in a production directed by Hamish Pirie.

‘Don’t go burying wild animals in my garden… or at least ask for permission first.’

Press Quotes

Guardian

The Arts Desk

'An attractive blend of black humour and genuinely disturbing ideas... vivid and resonant'

The Stage

'A dark, surrealist parable with shades of JG Ballard'

WhatsOnStage

'The disturbing and the dotty, queasiness and quirkiness mingle arrestingly… an impressive Royal Court debut'
