Agent: David Spicer Productions


The Beast by Eddie Perfect is a black comedy, centred around three middle-class, couples who after a near death experience decided to wipe the slate clean by embracing a tree-change.

Commissioned and premiered by the Melbourne Theatre Company in 2013, this is a cutting, modern day satire that shatters our ideas of morality, with a hilarious rant on urban culture, organic lifestyles and infidelity.

The close friends decide to celebrate their new lives with a nose-to-tail dinner party, purchasing an Angus calf but the butcher fails to arrive.

The environmentally conscious, ristretto-sipping, kale-eating friends are then faced with the pressing task of killing the young cow. This kick starts a chain reaction that will see them confront some ugly and shocking truths.
