“Oh, she’s dangerous. But not because of her genes. Because of you.”
In the not-too-distant future, the world is better than ever. Diseases and disorders have been wiped out. And Jess doesn’t belong. She slipped through the net and there’s something dangerous in her DNA, something that must be observed and, if it raises its ugly head, containment will not be enough to satisfy the authorities.
As debate over genetic screening rages, Tomcat’s urgent vision questions the lengths to which we will go to keep humanity healthy. What lengths will we go to keep society safe from the individuals within it?
Tomcat was premiered at The Southwark Playhouse in 2015 after it won the prestigious Papatango New Writing Prize. This will be its first showing since its London premiere and The Quarry Theatre is proud to present this excellent piece of new writing.
“A good, taut, intelligent 90-minute play that raises all manner of questions.” THE GUARDIAN
“An intriguing fusion of Gattaca and The Silence of the Lambs…A tense affair [which] exerts a real grip…ambitious, question-raising.” THE STAGE
