Like Animals by SUPERFAN is a funny and poignant theatre piece inspired by the true stories of research scientists’ attempts to communicate with animals.

Returning to Summerhall after a successful Fringe 2019 run, Like Animals investigates love and communication in human (and not so human) relationships. Exploring a series of complex relationships, each with its own uniquely funny, strange and touching world, Like Animals offers a new theatrical perspective on some intriguing scientific, ethical and philosophical questions, with a light touch and sense of fun and humour.

Performed by a real-life couple, it reveals the missed signals, crossed wires and miscommunications that make up the joy and heartbreak of trying to understand another being.  

Creators/Performers Pete Lannon and Kim Donohoe.
