Zoo

11:00, 02 - 26 Aug

A new play by Lily Bevan, performed by Lily Bevan and Lorna Beckett. Co-directed by Hamish MacDougall, sound design by Mike Winship, featuring Mike Wozniak and Jim Rastall.

A tale of animal instinct, fight or flight and a woman trying to trap 47 flamingos in a urinal.

From the co-writer of Talking to Strangers (BBC Radio 4/ Edinburgh Fringe w/ Sally Phillips 2016) “I doubt there will be anything as seriously funny for years.” - Gillian Reynolds, The Telegraph and writer/performer of Pheasant Plucker (Edinburgh Fringe sell out 2015).

Until today the most dangerous event at the zoo was the Tapir’s caesarian section. But when a hurricane heads straight for Miami, Bonnie rushes to keep her animals safe. Across the world in the Yorkshire dales - Carol feels the repercussions. However, the danger is deeper and darker than the weather.
An inventive comedy-drama of humanity, heroism, female friendship and flamingoes.
