The Herd by John McCarthy
5 December 2020
Online event
As part of Play It by Ear, The Everyman presents a rehearsed reading of The Herd, John McCarthy's big-hearted ode to family and relationships, available via live audio broadcast.

This rehearsed reading of The Herd, by John McCarthy, is part of Play It by Ear, a programme of shows for The Everyman stage and available on live audio broadcast.

The last cow of an infamously dangerous herd lies dead in Tess’s front room. Soon the entire community is fixed on properly waking the animals that held them in thrall for generations. And Tess is keen to finally get going on the front room renovation. With strong music and language from the off, this big-hearted ode to family and relationships — and death and butchery — explores a world on the cusp of change, and the far-flung consequences of one animal’s end.
