HUMANE is a new six-part audio drama 'tour' by Polly Creed, directed by Imy Wyatt Corner and produced by John Ainsworth. Based on an incredible true story, it explores activism, friendship and the values that unite and divide us.

'Touring': The Pleasance, The Omnibus Theatre, Compassion in World Farming, Theatre Deli Sheffield, and The Arcola. 

 

1995: Brightlingsea, a small port in rural Essex.

 

Two women, Alice and Linda, wake up to find lorries thundering through their town, carrying live animals in horrendous conditions for export.

 

Although from very different worlds, the pair unite to try to stop the lorries. They become unlikely friends, facing arrest and police brutality amidst the protests, while also dealing with the pressures of motherhood.

 

When one of their group dies, things start to unravel, as they face the differences between them...
