Zoo. Lily Bevan

By Lily Bevan. A tale of animal instinct, fight or flight and a woman trying to trap 47 flamingos in a urinal... Until today the most dangerous event at the zoo was the tapir's caesarean section. When a hurricane heads straight for Miami, Bonnie hurries to keep her animals safe. Across the world in Yorkshire, Carol feels the repercussions. However, the danger is deeper and darker than the weather. An inventive comedy drama of heroism and friendship. Co-directed by Hamish MacDougall. Performed by Lorna Beckett and Lily Bevan. 'A surfeit of imagination and humour' (Time Out, Critics' Choice).
