Creator of some of the most outstanding television plays made in the last fifty years, Nigel Kneale created, in Beasts, an anthology of six plays designed to showcase the breadth of his fertile imagination.

This malevolent and menacing thread runs through all six terrifying stories, which feature outstanding performances from actors such as Martin Shaw, Simon MacCorkindale, Glyn Houston, Michael Sheard and Pauline Quirke.
