‘ Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. 
Women are afraid that men will kill them.'


The story follows Jack from the age of 9 into her 30s, detailing her journey through puberty, misogyny, identity.

Jack is all of us; a victim, a phoenix, a superhero.

Using spoken word, comedy, drag, dance, and live original music, MEAT is an electrifying roar of fury, a rallying cry of protest & a unifying celebration of strength packed with heroism & heart.
