Beast combines terse dialogue with lilting verse and live performance, with flickering film footage. This evocative, lyrical play by Elena Bolster tells the lustful love story of an ageing 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. The evening 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). This two-hander stars Mel Oskar and Kieron Jecchinis (Crazy Earl, Full Metal Jacket).
