A Play, A Pie and A Pint: Lion Lion
The Lemon Tree
5 West North Street
An exploration of how a pair of animal lovers conducted themselves while camping away from civilisation for years.
Lion, Lion By Sue Glover George & Joy Adamson, like many others before and since, loved the animal kingdom as much, probably more, than their fellow humans. They camped for years – decades – in areas where humans were few, but dangerous wildlife teemed around them. With no mobiles, or skype, to relieve isolation, how did they react to the wilderness? When night fell, and they sat with a tilley lamp and a whisky for company, did they conduct themselves like civilised human beings? Draw on the wise intuition of big cats? The family loyalty of elephants, or apes? What furies and feelings surfaced under the stars?
