The Beast by Eddie Perfect

Eddie Perfect is one of the most original and passionate artists working in Australia today. His mordant wit, passionate politics and unstoppable urge to entertain are all hallmarks of his writing as a lyricist, composer and now playwright. Eddie’s work sits in a rich performance tradition. Although it is utterly original and his voice unmistakable, he brings the same kind of wry and occasionally savage lens to our experience of the world as the great Barry Humphries and the legions of writer/performer teams who made such television shows as Fast Forward, Frontline and (for those with long memories) Aunty Jack.
