This audio adaptation of ‘Every Breath’ by Judith Johnson explores the serious social, moral, scientific and political questions raised by the use of animals in medical research.
"Because we need to know. We need to understand"
Increasingly concerned by the use of animals in biomedical research, 18 year-old Sonny has begun protesting against the new laboratory that has been built in the area. His ideals put him on a collision course with his scientist sister, Anita, creating a conflict that threatens to tear the family apart.
Set against an instantly recognisable background of family life and pressures, Judith Johnson's play takes a difficult subject and looks at both sides of the argument. The result is a thought-provoking, even-handed debate on one of the most divisive of contemporary issues.
