Crabmeat - Camden Fringe 2018
Tristan Bates Theatre
J is hiding in the toilet at a gay club. Maybe because of what he just saw on the dance floor. Maybe because he's more anxious than normal. Or maybe because he's being chased by a crab ...and this is one cranky crustacean. As panic bubbles to the surface, J recounts the events that led to his most recent breakup and to the toilet in which he is currently cowering. It becomes clear trouble has been drifting closer and closer for some time now. All the while the Crab is snipping at his heels, primed with insults and slurs, trying to pincer his soft spots and, seemingly, eager to take him down. A darkly comic exploration of the cause and effect of minority stress, Crabmeat asks the question: why are we all hiding in this toilet?
