Rory Kinnear - The Herd

British actor Rory Kinnear has decided to tackle a subject for his first play that never seems to run out of steam: family. Kinnear’s suburban London family in his production, The Herd, comes together for a birthday party but instead of celebrating life, they spar over ideas of love, identity, loyalty and commitment. The Herd is emotion packed and full of wit. And while the subject matter at the heart of the story is serious; a child with a severe disability, there is a good dose of humor. Rory Kinnear stops by Morning Shift to talk about the idea behind The Herd, on stage at Steppenwolf now through June 7. (Flickr/boeke)
