Please note: ‘Another Mammal’ explores forms of violence, and contains sudden loud noises and the use of prop guns.
Two people. One gun. Infinite possibilities.
In this brand new play by acclaimed New Zealand playwright/comedian Jo Randerson, two characters attempt to mend their relationship: one of them has a gun. Their duel quickly escalates from a tense standoff to a wild ride of unpredictable twists and turns, propelling us into the realms of the mythical and the absurd.
"Another Mammal" investigates the persistence of violence as a default problem-solver. Can we humans find ways to live together with autonomy, dignity, and humanity? Why can’t we all just get along?
‘The Janet Frame of contemporary Wellington theatre,’ Jo Randerson’s distinctive artistic voice has received many accolades including a Bruce Mason Playwriting Award and ONZM. Another Mammal is quintessential Randerson: funny, fast, fresh and full of the vulnerability of being human.
