Herding Cats

By Lucinda Coxon
Directed by Anthony Banks
December 2011

 Balancing the cocktail of 21st century life is as impossible as herding cats. Justine has an infuriating new boss, Michael chats to strangers for a living – Saddo’s one of them. All three are living a comic fiction to try to avoid the facts. And now Christmas is coming… ready or not. Lucinda Coxon’s outstanding play directed by Anthony Banks freeze-frames a generation negotiating intimacy and independence.

Following its first run at the Ustinov Theatre, Bath Theatre Royal, David Luff transferred Herding Cats to the Hampstead Theatre in London for a critically acclaimed run in 2011 starring the original outstanding cast Olivia HallinanPhilip McGinley and David Michaels.

‘Lucinda Coxon’s arresting new play … Anthony Banks’ masterly direction … unforgettable.’ The Times ★★★★

‘The polished black shards of humour and ripples of queasy horror make for a compelling cackle into the void.’ Time Out ★★★★

‘A brave, brutal 75 minutes. A cool gaze on the disconnectedness of contemporary life. See it, and shudder.’ The Guardian ★★★★
