Statement from the Company:
'This is probably not unexpected news but sadly in the light of the current situation with COVID-19 we are postponing our Scottish Tour of Like Animals, due to kick off April 2020. We know that keeping people safe is the most important thing at the moment. Anyone who has already bought tickets for dates on the tour should contact the venue box office. We are gutted about this decision, but it’s necessary to protect our audiences and our team. Like Animals will be back out on tour and we’ll keep you updated about our plans once we know more.'

A parrot says ‘I love you’. A dolphin tries to speak. A woman spends a lifetime trying to understand.

Like Animals is a funny and poignant investigation into love and communication in human (and not-so-human) relationships. Inspired by true stories of animal language experiments and performed by a real couple, it blends surreal comedy with moments of tenderness and vulnerability to explore the impossibility of ever truly knowing someone else.

 ‘witty, poignant and very watchable’ THE STAGE

The show weaves together stories of human-animal communication experiments around performers Kim and Pete’s own relationship, glimpsing some of their miscommunications, missed signals and crossed wires along the way. We meet the woman who lived with a dolphin in a flooded house and tried to teach him English, as well as the parrot and scientist who worked together for thirty years, and who every night told each other ‘Be good, see you tomorrow, I love you.’

This performance is BSL interpreted.
