Hungry

FRI 30 JULY AND SUN 1, WEDS 4, FRI 6 AND SUN 8 AUG 2021

By Chris Bush. Part of Belgrade Theatre’s Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 programme.

Presented as part of Roundabout 2021 – a festival of new world-class plays and community-led activities taking place this summer in Wood End, Coventry.

“I’d watch you eat. I’d eat you up. You’re not like them, are you? You’re real.”

Lori is a professional chef. Bex waits tables to make ends meet. One night together in a walk-in fridge and the rest is history.

Lori has big plans, but Bex is struggling. If we are what we eat, then Bex is in real trouble. It’s not her fault though – the system is rigged. No-one on minimum wage and zero hours has the headspace to make their own yoghurt.

Hungry is a new play about food, love, class and grief in a world where there’s little left to savour.

Age Guidance: 12+
