“I am wired, awake, my mind full, my eyes fuller. I google him because for some reason he’s never not a bit in my brain, he’s sort of what I think I would like to be, maybe, Mr. Martin. And he’s there.”

John is a 27 year old teacher ‘who probably wasn’t allowed to teach at an all girls’ school’ and Mark is his 16 year old ‘Olympic porn watching’ pupil. A normal week in their normal lives – school, eat, TV, sleep, repeat.

Except in an age of twisted technology and possible profiles, the life Mark really wants is only a click away… but what happens when that life already belongs to John? By Friday shit really is going to hit the fan.

Fuelled by an electrifying mix of music and movement, WINK looks at two lives veering dangerously close to collision, asking us, what separates the man from the boy.

‘I want shocks! I’ve heard they are fun and a lot of blood rushes to your head.’

77-year-old Norma is having a tricky day. She can’t finish the crossword and Joy keeps stealing her recliner. Not to mention Helen next door has twisted her ankle falling from a weather balloon, they’ve run out of Class A drugs and the Utility Inspector just popped round to see if it’s time for her involuntary euthanasia…

Animals is a wicked satire set in a world where everyone over 60 is tossed on the scrapheap, children are hothoused, and being a “burden on society” is the ultimate crime.

Yorkshire-based Emma Adams has been New Writer in Residence at West Yorkshire Playhouse and has also written for Slung Low, Red Ladder, Look Left Look Right and Ovalhouse. Lisa Cagnacci is Associate Artistic Director of Theatre503.
