RED IN TOOTH AND CLAW

Writer

In 2009, I was commissioned by the Liverpool Everyman Theatre and Lime Pictures to write a short drama to mark the 150th anniversary of Darwin's On the Origin of Species. This was for Channel 4's Three Minute Wonder series.

A woman proves the extraordinary lengths to which she is willing to go to protect her home when the local council plans to demolish it in the name of regeneration, and in so doing proves the power of Darwin's Theory of Evolution.
