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 beautiful puppetry, new writing and documentary material this show tells a moving and darkly comic tale about the only certainty in life. Death, how it’s become removed from us as a process, how maybe we should reclaim it.
