Justine talks too much to get work off her chest. Michael chats to strangers for a living – Saddo’s one of them. But what use are words when you’re up against it in the wintry city? And Christmas is coming… ready or not…

Lucinda Coxon’s chillingly funny new play freeze-frames a generation negotiating intimacy and distance in the 21st century.

Herding Cats has recently been nominated for a Theatre Award UK for Best New Play.

Lucinda Coxon’s work includes Happy Now (National Theatre) and the recent BBCadaptation of Michel Faber’s The Crimson Petal and the White.

Olivia Hallinan, (Laura Timmins in BBC’s Lark Rise to Candleford and Kim in Sugar Rush), Philip McGinley (Tom Kerrigan in Coronation Street and recently at Hampstead in Jonathan Harvey’s Canary) and David Michaels (Heartbeat, As Time Goes By).
