‘I’m offering you the chance to eat me alive. For who really wants it, a genuine victim.’

Nick and Sam have a date this weekend and if things go well it will be the first and last time they will ever see each other. You see Nick wants to eat Sam… and Sam really wants to be eaten. Yes this is a cannibalistic romantic comedy that is pretty taboo – even for you. A bond that is gorgeous and gruesome in equal measure, a type of love not defined by sex or blood… so to speak… and a plan so appalling and pure it could never be acted on … until this weekend. Get ready for the rom com of the year.

Winner of the Pleasance Future Award 2018, Clay Party team up with the “vividly stark” Conflicted Theatre to tell the most unorthodox of love stories. How far will two consenting men go to fulfil their desire? This one you may have caught on the news or heard in a horror story; a relationship so off-limits it’s enticing, so enticing it’s horrifying. Fiji is a new play written by Pedro Leandro, Edward Stone and Evan Lordan.
