Laura Wiley Theater & Goodman Theatre 2010
"Will surely make you hungry but also move you deeply" (Chicago Tribune)
"There is no better dramatic meal now being served than "Feast" - an enthralling new show that is nothing short of delicious." (Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times) Hedy Weiss Chicago Sun-Times
A tamale vendor is blessed with a magical recipe from a real-life fairy godmother. A girl celebrates the arrival of her family’s first food stamps with a gleeful supermarket shopping spree. A butcher escapes the civil war in Lebanon, bringing to Chicago only the trade he learned from his father and grandfather. Workers labor in the sugar cane fields of Puerto Rico. A mother and father lovingly pass down their family’s fishing legacy to their son, before the family leaves the rural Philippines for urban America. A girl in India is terrorized by her family’s expectation that she learn to cook. A girl in Peru finds freedom through daily baking lessons with her aunt. Beloved by audiences and critically acclaimed, Feast shares stories of food cultures from around the world, heirloom recipes, hunger, exploitation, entrepreneurship, migration, adaptation, heritage – and the pleasure of good food, lovingly prepared.
APTP will bring a new Feast to the Goodman Theatre in Summer 2015!
