A comic tale, fraught with duplicity and dodgy ethics, that sees three strangers meet in a 24-hour gym late at night to negotiate the sale of a human kidney.

Meat Market was the first theatre play penned for writer Chris Grady, who cut his teeth writing for comedy sketches. He is the co-creator and co-writer of BBC Radio Scotland's Saddled. Chris is also a story producer on Scot Squad and regularly writes for River City. Other writing credits include projects with Greg McHugh.
