Beef

ByMat Blackwell

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Can an affair be non-physical? Is infidelity really just about meat slapping together? Or is what goes on behind the meat actually more important? ‘Beef’ is a contemporary satire about love, meat, and infidelity, set in an Australia of the incredibly-near future. It is a multi-generational tale of unseen consequences, and the pressures of leaving a legacy. But most of all, it’s the rollicking story of an awkward middle-aged sociophobe’s attempts to be a good partner and a good father and a good son, in the context of desperately trying not to have an affair with a wildly attractive psychic… a psychic who insists they are going to end up together, like it or not, because “it’s destiny”. From one of Australia's most-awarded comedy writers, ‘Beef’ explores desire and faithfulness in a dystopian future Australia where bizarre cults thrive, where music is advertising, where psychics are out of the closet, and where meat is no longer murder.
