Human Nature _is a show based around the idea of how much we, as humans, are related to the animals we evolved from. It is set in 1985 and follows the events of the cold war had it ended in a full scale nuclear war. We join one of the main characters, Aiden, alone making video diaries for the future. He, like a few others, had survived the catastrophe that had befallen most of Europe in the year prior. We see some of Aiden’s past during some flashbacks he has. Aidan is later joined by another, Evie, who has been alone for longer. She is noticeably more animalistic than Aidan. The play also looks at how animalised we become when we lose human contact and all of the technology we rely on so heavily. We have to go back to basics and learn how to live again. _ _Age Guidance: 14+ Contains mild nudity and sexual content, strong language, a gunshot and flashing lights. _Please note that there is a theatre restoration levy of £1.50 per ticket.
