Deliciously dark comedy about cannibalism
Audiences are welcomed as members of the Secret Society of Cannibals gathering for their Annual General Meating in this interactive theatre experience. The audience form the executive committee and members and are called on to present their parts of the annual reports. They will receive an envelope at the beginning with a number on it and are told that participation is mandatory, however they get one 'pass' and the person they pass their envelope to MUST open it and read it. It is a man-eat-man world after all. Featuring reports from the 'Ethics' committee, the 'Hunters and Gatherers' committee and the 'Recipe' committee, this show is peppered with tongue-in-cheek humour and some of the best lines are delivered by the audience. Reports by the audience members are short enough not to be daunting and are printed in large font. Envelopes are only opened upon the request of the Chairman, our actor.
A quote from the Recipe committee: 'You want the texture of a swimmer without the gaminess of a CrossFit junkie'.
