“I think Izzy challenges our very notions of what it is to be human. I think Izzy, in a way, disproves the whole concept of being ‘human’ and the arbitrary distinction we draw between ourselves and other animals.”

Zoe and Simon have had a baby. But their daughter Izzy isn’t entirely what they expected. A darkly comic play exploring the limits of parental love.

The film version of my short play ‘Nothing But Mammals’ (finalist at REDfest 2012:The Off West End New Writing Awards and winner of Best Cast and Best Director). It’s a Darwinian dark comedy about parenthood, and how we’re all just animals, really. The cast are Matt Houlihan and Antonia Reid, directed by Tom Ross, based on the stage production directed by Nadia Papachronopoulou.
