“A gem. The dialogue gurgles, sparkles, fizzes with compassion, recognition and wit. Glorious. Not to be missed.” -What's On
"The funniest, angriest, most original play to hit town in a long time." -CurtainUp
Jane and Kev don’t have secrets. They don't have room for them. Their children take up all the space. But when Kev comes home from a business trip with something to confess, he starts a chain reaction which has shattering consequences. Their weekend guests, wisecracking Phil and glamorous Lorna, are blissfully free of family chaos by contrast. But not being tied down isn't necessarily all fun and games either. As old friends get together, bottles are opened, laughter is shared, and the truth about ‘Home Sweet Home’ is hilariously and tragically revealed. Mammals is a bitterly comic examination of the perils of love and commitment. It speaks volumes to anyone who’s in, has ever been in, or will ever be in a family.
