Reliably informed

Shirley Dobson is a proud businesswoman. She’s the owner of a payday loans company, Dosh Ltd, and she’s won both North East Business Woman of the Year 2016 and the National Business Award 2019 (oh, plus she was awarded an OBE too, you know). So, what’s next for Shirley? Well, she’s getting back to the grind (perhaps a bit more literally than intended).

A darkly satirical play, Meat Factory follows Shirley as she embarks on her next undertaking. She’ll be pitching to the government and her fellow big-wig business buddies to help launch the latest business proposition as part of Quick ‘n’ Easy Meat-Based Products (and if you’re thinking that ‘meat-based’ is quite vague, you might want to hold on to those suspicions).

Originally a short play featuring in the 2015 award winning performance The Rooms, Meat Factory is now being reimagined as a short film, working alongside videographer Adam Goodwin. An online performance will be available on Alphabetti Theatre’s website indefinitely from Wednesday 19th August, so it’ll be possible to join Shirley in a virtual meat-based venture.

Meat Factory is screened via Alphabetti Theatre’s website from Wednesday 19th August
