From Rapid Descent’s artistic director Megan Finlay:

The show is an immersive and experiential piece inspired both by my desire for theatre that touches people in a more lasting and multi layered way, and the 20 plus years I have spent working as a chef to fund my life as an artist.

Feed the Kitchen has been created by myself, it’s cast, and writer Lisa Drostova who has also spent over 20 years working in the food service industry. It features Jenny Gamboa: a chef and performer, Tess Middlebrook : a chef, comedian and performer, Ian Greeb: a performer, character fabricator and puppeteer, Cason MacBride: a performer, clown and dancer and Ronja Ver: a performer and dancer.

This show is a crazy and ambitious project. I am blessed to have a super talented cast and crew to work with on it’s creation and we would love your support to help us make it happen, and your appetites to sample both the 4 course tasting menu and the show that we serve it to you in!

Let’s get to the important part: What do you get to eat?

As part of the action and story of Feed the Kitchen you, the audience, will be fed a 4 course tasting menu as follows:

Rustic Seasonal Vegetable Tart with roast parsnip, leeks, carrot, Brussels sprouts, ricotta, parmesan and gruyère
