WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
77-year-old Norma is having a tricky day. She can't finish the crossword and Joy keeps stealing her recliner. Not to mention Helen next door has twisted her ankle falling from a weather balloon, they've run out of Class A drugs and the Utility Inspector just popped round to see if it's time for her involuntary euthanasia... Animals is a wicked satire set in a world where everyone over 60 is tossed on the scrapheap, children are hothoused, and being a "burden on society" is the ultimate crime.
