Needs must. Needs lust. A hilarious new play about disability and sex
Hilarious, challenging and heartbreaking, ANIMAL won the inaugural Through The Mill Prize (Hope Mill Theatre supported by Jonathan Harvey), and was shortlisted in the top five for the Papatango Prize out of more than 1,500 entries.
ANIMAL is presented at Park Theatre this April.
Animal runs from 19 April 2023 until 20 May 2023 at Park Theatre, London.
What is ANIMAL about?
Meet David – gay, disabled and profoundly horny. He can’t eat, drink or shower by himself – let alone the rest. Totally inexperienced, he embarks on a sexual and romantic odyssey, armed with a fierce brain and impressive nudes (that he has to get someone else to take). But can David keep it casual whilst also relying on round-the-clock care? Can he manage the thrill and uncertainty of random hook-ups after a lifetime of knock-backs?
Who’s in the cast of ANIMAL?
Casting for Animal is to be announced.
ANIMAL is written by Jon Bradfield, co-writer of Above The Stage’s acclaimed series of queer adult pantomimes, from a story by Jon Bradfield and Josh Hepple, an activist with severe cerebral palsy who has a masters in law and is an equality trainer and a writer-journalist at The Guardian and Huffington Post.
Further creatives to be announced.
