UMKC Theatre Presents: Eat This! KC Chews on the Politics of Food

By , February 26, 2013 8:08 am

Food.  From mother’s milk to no-carb diets, there is little that is so essential, so political, so much on our minds than “our daily bread.”  In this world premiere, the cast and creative team interviewed local farmers, chefs, parents, and many others to discuss issues that touch our palates and our plates.  A unique theatrical events, Eat This! serves up issues as well as a meal–cooked onstage and shared with the audience!

Never has there been so much attention focused on the food industry.  From celebrity chefs and reality food competitions to obesity, GMOs and “pink slime,”  Eat This! strives to create dialogue and respond to our citizens’ plea to “show me.”

Written and directed by Assistant Professor Stephanie Roberts, the show runs March 1-10 in Studio 116, Olson Performing Arts Center.  Student tickets are just $6!

A Harvesters donation barrel will be available each night of the production.  Bring 2 items to donate and receive a FREE coupon to attend a future UMKC Theatre show!
