Nov. 10 - Nov. 20, 2016

Six of the world's leading dramatists in partnership with six world-renowned scientists combined their talents to create an extraordinarily imaginative, theatrical, politically provocative response to the global food crisis.

Meet Ruth, who ignores her father's advice and spends her savings to establish an organic carrot farm in Colombia. Explore the powerful imagery of a single baguette. Consider what you might trade for a glass of water.

Mouthful offers an intimate and compelling exploration of the careful path we must tread in the face of rising populations and shrinking resources. Food for thought, indeed. 

Featuring guest artists Jarrett King and Carla Nickerson
