BEAST is a one hour multimedia performance that mixes spoken-word, verbatim theatre and investigative journalism. The show began life as a ten minute performance commissioned by BBC 1xtra for the Contains Strong Language festival 2017. A collection of poetry was then published by Burning Eye Books. The show was longlisted for SMHA Mental Health at the Fringe Award 2018, The show tells the story of two sexual assault survivors, Zara and John, as they try to piece their lives back together. On their journey they encounter Rugby Boys, Pick-Up-Artists, high level politicans and a nation-wide network of vigilante ‘hunters’ of alleged sex-offenders. It challenges men to take an unflinching look at their behaviour, and asks how — if it is possible at all- to break the cycle of violence.

'Intense, wake-up, stop in your tracks talent'
-Layla Wolfson

'Beast takes you on a heartbreaking emotional journey, and Liam’s performance style and voice and words all culminate together to make you laugh, cry, and think very hard about the consequences of your actions towards other people.’
Calum Wensley, @CalumthePoet

'I believe that more young people today (not enough, to be clear, but more) are being helped and supported to escape from the emotional and psychological prison that their abuser and their experience of abuse locks them into.
I believe that, sometimes, this help comes through supporting the discussion of abuse, its enablers and its effects, creating and maintaining frames and spaces within which everyone – but particularly young people – can be helped to understand and escape the effect of abuse on their own terms and in their own way.
I believe that Beast is intended to be, and acts as, such a frame and that it can help enable some of these discussions. For that reason, but not just for that reason, I hope that Beast is seen by as many people as possible.’
Chris Boyland, Glasgow Empire
