Gill Greer’s play was a finalist for the Theatre 503 International Playwriting Award in 2018. I read it at the time and I really liked it so I’m looking forward to seeing it get a full production. It’s a play in which a two ex-lovers, Max and Ronan, meet up to chew over the past. But this is about more than shared reminiscences, because Max tells Ronan she has something to tell him about a night seven years previously. Only what happens when their memories are so very different about the same event? The awards panel described Meat as a play that “introduces a distinct theatrical voice with vibrant energy, and a play with real teeth.” It certainly is, and one that bites into issues surrounding consent, sexual assault and #MeToo.

About Meat

When Max pays Ronan a visit at his restaurant in Dublin, he’s determined to prove to her how far he’s come, but she’s got something bigger to discuss. Over the course of one wine-soaked evening, old wounds are exposed and new truths uncovered. Meat is a story of class, consent and how modern Ireland reckons with the transgressions buried in its past. How can one couple navigate their shared history when their memories don’t quite match up? Written by playwright and dramaturg Gillian Greer, Meat was a finalist in Theatre503’s International Playwriting Award in 2018, reaching the top 5 of 2,055 plays submitted from 49 countries. Directed by Lucy Jane Atkinson and produced by Emily Carewe, this production is presented as a co-production with 45North.
