SOUL FOOD – FORWARD THEATER COMPANY’S MONOLOGUE FESTIVAL

November 9-11, 2012

PLUS! Another performance has just been added to the schedule! GREAT seats are available for the 2pm performance on Saturday, November 10th.

Ah food. . .everyone’s got a favorite dessert, a coveted midnight snack, a go-to take-out order after a stressful day, or a recipe that reminds them of home. Food is inextricably linked with first dates in restaurants, memories of summer picnics, tailgating before the big game, and holidays at grandma’s house. This year playwrights from across the country are invited to contribute to the company’s second monologue festival, focusing on engaging, embarrassing, hilarious, and heart-warming stories that revolve around food. Bring your appetite for fun and exciting new work, and enjoy a dozen monologues from our menu!
