THE STORY: Matt and Anna’s relationship is going swimmingly, until the sewers under their apartment open up and begin to speak. The plumber is angry, Matt’s paintings are getting stranger, and a storm is gathering. An eerie comedy about what is real, what is not, and who knows.
“…nicely creepy…agreeably scary and original…There are twists and turns and more than one startling U-bend.” —The New York Times. “…smartly mixes the comedic and the macabre…Peel back its magical-horror story of ancient sewer creatures who reach out to a gentle artist…and you’ll find a perceptive study of a character and relationship.” — “…a briskly paced…and largely unflinching examination of the how we hurt and try to heal the ones we love…What’s real and what’s imagined is a slippery issue and a big part of the piece’s appeal…Finley’s crackling script is ruthlessly efficient.” — “…very funny…The play is concise, efficient, and humorous with a good dose of the fantastic.” — “[THE FEAST] has an old-fashioned Gothic feel to it, despite…taking place in an instantly recognizable, urban setting…the tension is maintained beautifully, and the ambiguity between breakdown and ghost story leads to a denouement, in a dark apartment with a storm brewing, that is genuinely scary and surprising." —
