For Their Own Good

For Their Own Good

Can the way we kill animals tell us anything about how we deal with our own demise? In a former veterinary demonstration room, two knackermen investigate the pitfalls of being high up the evolutionary chain. Combining puppetry, new writing and documentary material this show tells a moving and darkly comic tale about the only certainty in life: death and how its become removed from us as a process. Unflinching honesty, genuinely humbling and unique (Strawberry Line Times). Bitesize commission supported by WAC, mac, Bristol Ferment, China Place and Arts Council England. Part of British Council Showcase.

by director Steven Johnstone and performers Jake Oldershaw and Jack Trow, with text from live interviews and elsewhere
