We have historic choices to make as a species, reckons Wellington playwright Jo Randerson, who looks a power imbalances and asks why people just can't get along in her new show.
Another Mammal was due to premiere last year but the lockdowns put paid to that.
But it's given her a chance to reconsider the script in light of behaviour seen here and overseas throughout the global pandemic.
Earlier this year Jo received the ONZM for services to the performing arts and her company Barbarian Productions does a lot of work devising theatre with local communities.
Lynn Freeman asks Jo about those historic choices we face.
Another Mammal written by Jo Randerson premieres at Wellington's Circa theatre on the 8th of May
