Created by Food For Thought's Founding Artistic Director, Susan Charlotte, Cause Célèbre is devoted to fostering an enhanced understanding of psychological, physical and social issues. Each month a different issue will be the focal point, a different set of plays will be presented and a different group of celebrities will perform. Every month proceeds will go to a foundation connected to the cause.
