The Beast by Eddie Perfect

Eddie Perfect is one of the most original and passionate artists working in Australia today.

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.

2014 National Play Festival

For the last few year's we've been pleased to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the festival's showcase presentation of readings, chatting with the artists who have shaped these stories from the ground up.
