Fresh Meat by Dylan Costello at Courtyard from 8 June


Act 1 Productions presents a new dark comedy Fresh Meat, by Dylan Costello, at the Courtyard Theatre, in Hoxton, north London from 8 June to 4 July 2010

The idea for the play was inspired by the true story a few years ago of a young man in Germany who offered himself to be eaten by a cannibal as a way of committing suicide.

It is directed by Manolis Emmanouel, designs & costumes by Maira Vazeou, sound & lighting by Andrea Payne, and stars Manolis Emmanouel (Theo), David Fernandez (Alex), Cerith Flinn (Lenny), John Shortell (Oscar).

Young suicidal gay man Lenny discovers an alternative way to die when he offers himself to be eaten by a married pair of gay cannibals - Alex and Theo. But as Lenny ingratiates himself into Alex and Theo's lives in preparation for his unusual death, he instead falls in love with Theo and finally finds a reason to carry on living. But taking himself off the menu is not going to be that easy...

Looking for the best seats...
