Justine talks too much to get work off her chest. Michael chats to strangers for a living - Saddo’s one of them. But what use are words when you’re up against it in the wintry city? And Christmas is coming... ready or not...
Lucinda Coxon’s chillingly funny new play freeze-frames a generation negotiating intimacy and distance in the 21st century.
Herding Cats has recently been nominated for a Theatre Award UK for Best New Play.
"What a brave, brutal 75 minutes this is … a cool gaze on the disconnectedness of contemporary life which lets nobody off the hook … faultless performances from Olivia Hallinan, Philip McGinley and David Michaels. So brutal, you almost forget to breathe. See it, and shudder. " The Guardian ★★★★
"Lucinda Coxon’s arresting new play. Anthony Banks’s masterly direction ... unforgettable." The Times ★★★★
