Watch our interview with Jon Bradfield as we discuss ANIMAL coming to Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester on March 9th to April 2nd
By Jon Bradfield from a story by Jon Bradfield and Josh Hepple
Co-Produced with Park Theatre, London
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?
Hilarious, challenging and heart-breaking, ANIMAL won our 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.
Jon Bradfield co-wrote Above The Stag Theatre’s acclaimed series of queer adult pantomimes, most recently Dick Whittington – A New Dick in Town , and he wrote Missing Alice for the BBC and Old Vic. Josh Hepple is an activist with severe cerebral palsy. He has a masters in law and teaches at various universities. He has been a theatre reviewer, and is an equality trainer and a writer-journalist at The Guardian and Huffington Post.
