Pulling Together. Falling Apart.
The day isn’t going as planned. But nor is life...
As Carol prepares to celebrate the 21st birthday of her severely disabled son, Andy, the rest of the family gather: Andy’s older sister. Their grandparents... And Ian, Andy’s absentee father who is loathed by everyone in the room.
While Andy and his caregiver make their way to the house, ranks close and wounds open... Written by Rory Kinnear, The Herd is a witty, heartfelt portrait of a family brought together and torn apart by circumstance and secrets.
