What is it?
Combining terse dialogue with lilting verse and live performance with flickering film footage, this evocative, lyrical play tells the lustful love story of an aging artist and a young prostitute. Egon and Valie find themselves unexpectedly drawn to each other after a chance drunken exchange and a night of paid-for fantasy turns into a passionate relationship fuelled by whiskey and art. Against the backdrop of clanking docks, swarming fish and a swirling sea, their affair intensifies before reaching its heartbreaking conclusion.
Critically acclaimed at the Edinburgh Fringe 2009, Beast was the recipient of the Judges Special Award at the Unfringed Festival in Limerick (2010).
