About this show

Part fiction, part documentary, and based in part on interviews conducted with people whose backgrounds are as diverse as farmers, food scholars, hunters, waiters, ad men, immigrant workers, diabetics, and dumpster divers (known as "freegans"), Milk 'N' Honey is a large-scale multi-media play that looks at food and appetite in the 21st century: the play's interweaving storylines follow a couple whose marriage is at stake as they differ about what food to put on the table, a grocery store clerk who forages through dumpsters, immigrant farm workers, a family that struggles with diabetes, a flavor chemist who attempts to capture the flavor of light. The themes of food and consumption will be underscored in Milk 'N' Honey as an actor consumes an entire meal -- from soup to nuts, from "curtain up" to "lights out" -- on stage as part of every performance of the play.
