Humane : Episode 1 (hosted by The Pleasance)

A new six-part audio drama from True Name Theatre. This episode is brought to you with Pleasance Theatre.


1995: Brightlingsea, a small port in rural Essex.Two women, Alice and Linda, wake up to find lorries thundering through their town, carrying live animals in horrendous conditions for export. Although from very different worlds, the pair unite to try to stop the lorries. They become unlikely friends, facing arrest and police brutality amidst the protests, while also dealing with the pressures of motherhood. When one of their group dies, things start to unravel, as they face the differences between them. Timely and lyrical, Humane is a new six-part audio drama about activism, friendship and motherhood and the values that unite and divide us.


Starring Marcia Lecky (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Francesca Isherwood (The Worst Witch, The Catherine Tate Show), and Dr Who star, Louise Jameson, this is a timely and urgent story about animal rights, community and the issues that divide and connect us.
