Sometime in the 21st Century, times are not so much lean as anorexic. An island in a sea of chaos, one man still clings to Traditional British Values, managing his wayward wife and running a butchers shop: his Empire.

When Perchik, committed vegetarian and outlaw artist, swims across Hadrian’s Channel to England and stows away in a container full of meat, he lands up in Saul’s shop. Since Saul’s last boy went missing, Perchik gets an instant job offer. With riots raging in the streets outside, it may be safest to accept. Or maybe not.

Fast and farcically funny, Lucy Kirkwood’ first full-length play plunges you into a disturbing vision of a dystopian future.
