This one is for the feet
Those that have run and those that have walked
Away from terrible moments
And into good ones
Well done feet
You little heroes
Bestiary is an anthology of anthropomorphised animal stories. The work speaks to the relationship between humanity and the natural world, using the vehicle of talking, humanised animals to address big social issues. This play follows in the tradition of twin genres – dark animal parables told as warnings against human folly and the cuddlier world of modern children’s stories.
