About This Show

Food is a prism to look into love and sex, conflict and life in the six short plays of A la Carte: a Feast of New Plays. Short works of various genres by Allan Knee, Dana Leslie Goldstein, Laurie Graff, Laura Hirschberg, Gary Giovanetti and Scott C. Sickles will be presented.

The evening’s setting gradually morphs from a magical dreamscape to a realistic kitchen in the course of this unified evening, which weaves plays of disparate subjects into a thematic flow. It begins with a haunting play by Allan Knee set in Port Authority and ends with a tender tale of generational love by Dana Leslie Goldstein that is set in a mother’s kitchen. The idea is to start in a place of hunger and then have courses (fish, eggs, popcorn, and finally dessert). Throughout the evening, food motifs are used to examine the daily struggles of life and the social and personal issues behind them.
