What Others Are Saying

“The range of themes on display here is commendable: privilege, love, introspection, and atrocity are all explored through food allegories and do a fantastic job of servicing the idea that food is intimately linked to the way we see ourselves and others. [Recommended]”

“There’s a memorable vulnerability and generosity in the performers and the stories they share in THE FOOD SHOW not often seen on stage. As an audience member you feel accepted and welcomed to have different opinions, but also to engage in conversation – no small feat for a subject that is so loaded. If I imagine what the perfect meal with loved ones would be like, THE FOOD SHOW is exactly how I think it would feel: people who know your rhythms, respect your boundaries, and love you just how you are.”

The Food Show

July 27 - September 2 2017

Created & Directed by Dan Kerr-Hobert


What does it mean to change a family recipe? The Food Show, created by Dan Kerr-Hobert with the help of his cousin and Neo-Futurist alum Caitlin Stainken, explores how food brings us together and sets us apart. An ensemble of five writer-performers get their hands dirty in this celebration and cross examination of food and its relationship to identity. The Food Show honors the traditions of our past and acknowledges our impact on the environment as each generation of eaters must decide what parts to keep and what parts to throw away. Farmers, restaurateurs, writers, musicians and audiences come together to experience the common thread of food and memory in American culture.

**The Food Show, hosted by Metropolitan Brewery (3057 N. Rockwell) will have all performances just down the street at 3031 N. Rockwell. A spacious white-bricked warehouse, 3031 N. Rockwell is a short walk from the Belmont & Rockwell 77 stop and the Diversey & Rockwell stop for the 76. All accessibility requests should be directed to admin@neofuturists.org or 773-878-4557. **
