If life is an act of consumption, what happens if we eat too much?

In this unique collaboration between NIDA and STC, four short plays set 50 years apart spin us from 1919 to 2069 while all the time chewing on the challenges of now.

Eat Me is alive, alert and alarmed. It travels through trickery and trauma before arriving at the end of everything. The four plays are written by members of STC’s Emerging Writers Group and directed by the four directors of the Contemporary Asian Australian Performance Directors Initiative at STC.
