About this show

An Empty Plate in the Café du Grand Boeuf was playwright Michael Hollinger's first of many plays to premiere at the Arden Theatre. This all-new production is a delicious, dark comedy celebrating the joys of cooking, sex, bullfighting and the collected works of Ernest Hemingway. It's 1961 and Victor is a wealthy American expatriate living in Paris. He owns the fabulous Café du Grand Boeuf - the world's greatest restaurant reserved solely for his private use. He arrives one summer evening after a trip to Madrid in a very bleak mood and announces to his staff his decision to starve himself to death! Directed by Whit MacLaughlin Performed on the Arcadia stage
