‘ Men are afraid that women will laugh at them.
Women are afraid that men will kill them.'
MEAT is an electrifying roar of fury, a rallying cry of protest & unifying celebration of strength packed with heroism & heart. A playful and poignant exploration of identity. Written by multi-award winner Elle Dillon-Reams, 'Best Newcomer' The Scotsman.
A dirty dive into the foundations of power, an injection of a new narrative - MEAT is a theatrical hybrid of poetry, clowning, cabaret and dance featuring original music.
