    Love this play. It pokes fun at the “foodies”, the elite, the awkwardness of a 2nd date, etc. Marcia has built 2 wonderfully complex characters while teasing the audience with the mystery of the restaurant. The server serves as a narrator and moderator of this date. It’s all brilliantly crafted and honestly, I’d probably try the food. Great work!

    Poking fun at food trends and the gastro-elite is so much fun with the delightful short play. The dialogue between the diners.. and the server... is sharp, witty, and perfectly absurd!

    I never could have imagined a restaurant scene involving a recycling of gourmet food and a second date causing so much distress, but this play is fresh, funny and loaded with social commentary. It made me think about the whole “farm to table” trend in a different light and consider what might be going overboard on how we consume new (or perhaps old) food while paying exorbitant prices for the experience. I give this the highest ranking—three stars!
