THE LAST LUNCH
Winner Best New Play Brighton Fringe 2012
'...think "The Archers",
Only with more vegans, more acid,.........oh.......and more ritual murder.'
It's Sunday lunch, and where the roast should be, there's a tofu wiener casserole instead.
Albert, a butcher, is mortified and questions his wife Jean who has put it on the table.
Why has she?
One of their twins, Mark, a vegan, and his opinionated vegan spiritual-midwife girlfriend Julie, are coming to lunch, and Albert takes it all very personally.
Twin sister Maddy, is on her way too, with 16yr old daughter, Hannah, who has an intense personal secret she needs to share.
Everyone is converging on Albert's house, including beef-farmer Pete, (father to Hannah's dreamy boyfriend, Andy), abattoir worker Dave, (and his set of large knives), Andy himself, Sam (Albert and Jean's youngest, just back from fighting in Afghanistan, and bearing frightful news) and the spirits of some of the animals that Dave, Pete and Albert have, between them, been instrumental in dispatching.
All is set for a monumental clash of beliefs, values, knives,… and hearts.
