Meat will run next week from Wednesday, July 17th, to Saturday, July 20th (at 8:30 PM, tickets are 8/10€), as part of the Galway Fringe Festival. The play is a huge undertaking for the drama society and they are hoping to top the success of last year's Rewind, which fared very well in the festival.
Meat is a dark modern fairy tale about prostitutes and punters, men and women, animals and humans. The play is set in an upmarket brothel run by Demo, a gifted hawker and collector of beauty. The exquisite specimens in his menagerie are Anezka, glamorous courtesan with a flair for the esoteric, Shóna, hard-bitten veteran of the street trade, and Miriam, whose specialty is everything. Enter Free, a young mother desperate to make money for the sake of her son and a radical new element in Demo’s masterfully composed concoction.
