THE STORY: A vacationing couple celebrates their anniversary at a Greek restaurant in Palm Springs—but will the marriage survive the service? As a needy waiter insinuates his way into their meal—and their lives—the couple examines their past and their future together. Playwright Wendy MacLeod brings us a tender comedy that delves deeply into what we hunger for.
“…in SLOW FOOD, playwright Wendy MacLeod comes up with every imaginable (and unimaginable) way to delay [the couple’s] gratification, while simultaneously serving up 95 minutes of delicious comedy for the audience to relish…If you’ve never understood the concept of the term hangry, you’ll get it after seeing SLOW FOOD…a tasty recipe for a great night at the theater.” —BroadwayWorld.

“…a well-written comedic meditation on marriage.” —New England Theatre Geek.

“[SLOW FOOD] generates plenty of laughs from a conflict that most of us have experienced: the desperate fight to have dinner in peace.” —Arts Fuse.
