Don’t go burying wild animals in my garden… or at least ask for permission first.

In the overcrowded city, nature is getting out of control.

The mice are scratching between walls, the pigeons are diseased and the foxes are beginning to rule the streets.

The problem is growing. It’s contagious. It has to be stopped, before it’s too late.

People can get used to terrible things. Very quickly. If the have to. It doesn’t take much for things to start to fall apart

Royal Court [Off West End]

“Resonant and disturbing... Appealing mix of bizarre humour and acute discomfort... Choral sections give the play an epic scope. ”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Queasiness and quirkiness mingle arrestingly... A very promising debut that the Royal Court has done proud. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Smith makes a blinder of a Royal Court debut with this short but expansive vision of societal collapse... Resolutely ambiguous. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A dark, surrealist parable... shot through with mordant humour, blossoms into something richer... Skin-crawling and sharp. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“A series of crisp snapshots... Dazzling flashes of humour... [Its] epic scope doesn’t have enough breathing space. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)
