By Betty Diamond
Directed by Jan Levine Thal

May 4-19, 2018
Bartell Theatre, Evjue Stage

A seriously comic exploration of women and food.  Why do we eat when we’re not hungry? Why do we not eat when we are? Is it safe to give babies food from cans? A group of old friends consider these and other issues as they gather to celebrate a birthday.  With cake.

Madison premiere of this award-winning play! Ten Performances with talkbacks after most shows.
